Fatboy from Sweden are the darkest rockabilly band Iíve ever heard. And I donít mean dark in a cartoonish psychobilly way but in the way that The Dad Horse Experience is dark (if you donít know it go and find out!). Drawing influences from country as well as sad pop music Fatboy are the perfect soundtrack for putting a rope around oneís neck or dating a passionate undertaker.
It reminds me a lot of Finnish tango as it has the very same, very Scandinavian kind of sadness and melancholy. At the same time it sounds very genuine, very Great Plains. I also like the simple but beautiful artwork and I like that it features the lyrics. For people who are into rockabilly or country or similar music this record is a must check out. People who donít get along with this kind of aesthetic wonít like it. I guess. But thatís the way it isÖ
