Woozy, fuzzy, yet full of urgency and moments of pure beauty, Flat Rufus’ brand new song ‘Palm Readers’ is the perfect thing to energise you for the rest of the week.
Flat Rufus is the project of Harry Sherrin, who over the last few years has been razing Bristol to the ground as part of post-hardcore four-piece Milo’s Planes. Now based in Manchester, this new solo project was revealed a few months back on a split EP with Bristol Live favourite Slonk – who also happens to be his brother. Flat Rufus falls somewhere in-between both Milo’s Planes and his brothers project, with a blending of light, sweet, electronica and energetic, fuzzing 90’s emo.
‘Palm Readers’ is the first track off Flat Rufus’ upcoming debut album Canton, and immediately announces itself with his distorted vocals, twinkling electronics and chiming acoustic guitars. It has a ever-widening, cinematic quality thanks to to the multitude of layers, and manages to beautifully fit contrasting influences together perfectly.
