Like, really good.


Those home-made style recordings may be giving it their best shot at clinging on to the indie masses, but the past few months have seen an undeniable shift towards bigger and bolder sounding songs. Even the lo-fi darlings of a few years ago like Tennis or Dum Dum Girls are setting their sites on something a bit more ambitious. It can be hit and miss of course; either taking you to a new level or polishing away all the charm that made those records such a success in the first place. Sydney band The Fixators finalised their line-up in 2012 and there's no doubt where they stand in all of this. After a debut EP, they now release 'Colourblind' to coincide with a tour of their homeland's sweltering east coast.

Showing much ambition with their music, the quartet are taking aim at the mainstream, but doing so under the guise of an indie-rock band. Their record collection probably contains a few classic stadium-rock acts such as U2, but their sound isn't quite so unashamedly commercial. The plan here seems to be to impress with the sheer force and tightness of their tunes, while enchanting music fans (not just those who buy two albums a year) and trying to capture a decent share of the market. Granted, this track may be a bit too sanitised for some, but its inch-perfect production and storming chorus is made for both heavy radio rotation and filling cavernous venues. If things go their way, there could be some pretty big crowds at their gigs before long.
