After some stellar post CMJ reviews, buzz band Fort Lean is ready . With only a self-released EP on their bandcamp, they have been able to make some lasting impressions with little material. Maybe it’s the hair? Frontman Keenan Mitchell rocks an 80’s metal band bleach blonde curly do, a feature that’s difficult not to notice or mention here.
But of course, it’s not just the hair. Mitchell’s strong vocals evoke a sense of sincerity, moving between playful and light-hearted tonalities to desperate pleas for affection. Fort Lean’s new video for single “High Definition” showcases some seriously catchy guitar riffs through a story of hopeless romantic delirium. Perfect for these last fleeting weeks of Autumn. Fort Lean will be playing a few shows in New York in the coming months, but we’re hoping they will show the west coast some love in 2012. Check out their video below:
