Though not a smooth vocalist, faunch makes an impact through sheer will on a varied collection of tunes that draws inspiration from past eras. “Man with the Getaway Face” is a sunnyside-up slice of psychedelic pop that might appeal to Robyn Hitchcock fans. An ‘80s synth-pop vibe powers “1984,” whose chorus and vintage synth tones (especially the drums) suggest that it could be appropriate for a period film placement. The artist veers into a more straightahead 4/4 rock & roll mode for “Bad Influence,” a launchpad for scorching guitar licks. One thing’s clear––though faunch’s voice takes some getting used to, he’s having a blast at the mic, and suggests a live stage is the ideal medium for his music.
