The Fuzzy Lights
In Silence We Weep EP

Article written by James S - Apr 21, 2005

The Fuzzy Lights are Xavier and Rachel from Cambridge and beyond that I can provide no biographical detail. They are of an unknown age, except that they clearly remember that week around five years ago that Godspeed You Black Emperor were declared the future of music by the NME. ’In Silence We Weep’ sounds a lot like GYBE and their ilk, only with around 16 members fewer members. Consequently, it’s about as groundbreaking as a paraplegic mole.

What it is, though, is bloody gorgeous. The mournful sweep of Rachel’s violin and the rolling rumble and riffs of Xavier’s multi-layered guitar tracks combine to make the epic No Signal - Help! very special indeed. The fact that it becomes an entirely different song half way through, before building to an incessant and punishing climax, does nothing to detract from it.

The other track, Picture Thoughts, which also tops the eight minute mark, sounds like Depeche Mode’s Pimpf being played by two particularly melancholic undertakers, which probably shouldn’t work as well as it does. The Fuzzy Lights are a great reminder that, when it’s done this well, post-rock still has the power to move you.
