When news of the supergroup FIZZ first came to the surface, announcing that emerging talents dodie, Orla Gartland, Greta Isaac and Martin Luke Brown would be forming a collective together, it almost sounded to good to be true. But as the months and singles have been rolling out, it has been clear why these four wanted to band together and create something new and interesting for the new music landscape. Now after more than enough buzz, they release their long-awaited debut album 'The Secret To Life', a record brimming with bright and illustrious ideas.
Usually the idea of getting four artists used to being in front of the microphone to work as one unit can sometimes feel a little muddled, but FIZZ have solved that dilemma by getting each member to take equal turns to shine here, giving 'The Secret To Live' this wonderfully vibrant and distinctive aesthetic. Sounding more and more like a group of friends simply having fun and enjoying each others company, this new collection is a fun and lively romp that barely has a moment to falter.
Side-projects such as these tend to be short-lived, but it's clear that FIZZ have tapped into something so special here, we hope they continue it far beyond the one full-length release. With such an inviting pursuit of songwriting prowess at every turn, 'The Secret Of Life' is the perfectly listen to brighten any downbeat day.
