Over the years penning for Podcart, it’s struck me how many artists disband, call it a day and fade into the abyss. United Fruit, despite various hurdles, have continued to cement their place as one of Scotland’s most vital alternative bands.
After a brief sabbatical the quartet are back with one of the highlight songs of their career so far.
With urgent rifferama, labyrinthine melodic, pathways and propulsive bassline, ‘Where The Sun Beats Down’ is a colossal number.
Within a landscape of imbued electronic pop and predictable autotuned hip hop, United Fruit help showcase that guitar bands are still very much alive and fighting.
