Premiering now on ICM is the fun and jangly new single from Dutch Criminal Record.

Drawing inspiration from the alternative jangly surf pop of the 60s, ‘Fade Away’ infuses intertwining guitar riffs with blooming harmonies.

Portsmouth-based quartet follows up on previous single ‘Graduate’ which carries similar harmonic guitars and stunning melodic tinkering.

Comprised of Riordan Hanan – Bass and Vocals, Joe Delaney-Stone – Guitar and Vocals, Sam Thrussell – Guitar and Vocals and Joe Frampton – Drums, the new single is a boisterous single that has really taken the band to another level.

The cathartic indie track is an evocation of the uncertainty of growing up mixed with gloriously energetic and infectious riffs as the band explain.

“Fade Away is a song about feeling isolated and lonely as if you might be ‘fading away’. It’s also about being stuck in a rut every day and feeling like nothing is changing or happening.”

Dutch Criminal Record continues to build their reputation as one of the most exciting new bands from the south coast with a couple more shows left – more below.

Tour dates:

July 21 – Bristol Harbourside
August 30 – The Wedgewood Rooms, Portsmouth
