Go here to check out some new music by Fletcher C. Johnson. Who's that?
A Brooklyn-based three-piece, and the name of the fearless leader.
Fletcher C. Johnson premiered the A-side to their White Iris Records released Messin' Up My Mind 7" over at Noisey.com. The 7", available now, perfectly exemplifies the sweeter side of the classic 60's rock 'n roll on which the band crafts their sound. "Messin' Up My Mind" is a throwback to mid '60s Kinks fun, while B-side "Lost My Head" adds a touch of Jamaican pop with a Motown feel, resulting in a two song release that still manages to display a bit of diversity, while still maintaining the band's signature upbeat rhythms.
Fletcher C. Johnson, led by none-other-than Fletcher C. Johnson, are a band on the verge of something special. Their emphasis on catchy vocal melodies combined with hook-ridden riffs find them in unique territory among the throngs of overly distorted bands in the garage rock genre. Fletcher C. Johnson further separate themselves from the pack with their innovative songwriting, which includes carefully layered organs, fuzz, falsetto vocals, strings, synths and perhaps most importantly words of wisdom from Fletcher's mother.
The band will be embarking on a 15-date tour.
