Shuffling on over with debonair grace, New York four-piece Redfoot’s Make It Quick slides woozily around a lyrical refrain of “I’ll crash and burn/ But I will return” as the repressed guitars beyond smoulder with guile. The troupe are as though a transatlantic Suede stained with yet more wistful melodrama, and whereas Brett Anderson et al. recently arose a phoenix from the flames destined to singe itself on an Icarian sun of self-indulgence, the only viable way appears to be up for Romi Dyron, Alex Topornycky, Kurt Gottwald and Chris Yetner. Abetted by Darby Cicci of The Antlers, Make It Quick is unashamedly grandiose as intros go and not that “we all know how it goes” in a more broad sense or anything, but it’s easy to see the tide turning in their favour sooner rather than later.
