Notes

FOG began life as Andy Broder‘s solo, homegrown, lo-fi musical experiments and expanded into a three-man band, blasting out full-on rock tracks but still staying true to their foundations.

Their last album Ditherer is their most accessible and confident work – epic guitars, electronics and some of the most inventive and memorable lyrics of any band we can think of.

Quotes

“Superb… latterday Radiohead.” 4/5 Mojo

“Ceaselessly inventive rock experimentation… the closest comparison is Kid A era Radiohead. Nice.” Q

“Fog deserve to be talked of in the same hushed tones as The Flaming Lips or Arcade Fire… Ditherer is a thrilling distillation of their talents, full of anthemic soundscapes, post-millennial culture angst, strange time shifts, clashing scales and a curiously 90s post-hardcore guitar sound.” Time Out
