New video from Fits with Ice Cream on a Nice Day seemed fitting for 50thirdand3rd’s Video of the Day! I hope everyone can get your hands on a nice ice cream today. I’m quite infatuated with this animation created by Mary Shyne . The lyrics are simple but very telling. “Why are all these eyes on me? Did I begin a thought I can’t complete?” I mean, who can’t relate?! This is a track from Fits’ debut album, All Belief is Paradise set for release November 17,2017 via Father/Daughter Records. That record label is doing some pretty awesome stuff if you haven’t checked them out yet get on over and do so, you’re welcome.
Bio from Father/Daughter Recs for Fits:
After years of playing bass in multiple bands across the Brooklyn music scene, Nicholas Cummins is releasing All Belief is Paradise, the debut full-length for their first songwriting effort, Fits. Songs that began as vocal and bass loops recorded to voice memo as a way for Cummins to express their own desires and songwriting designs, have evolved into effusive power-pop songs with the help of close pals drummer Brian Orante, and later Joe Galarraga (Big Ups) on guitar and Emma Witmer (gobbinjr) on bass. All Belief is Paradise, named after a line in a Lisa Robertson’s The Weather, honors the spirit of the early material (sometimes directly pulling in bits of early voice memo demos) while unveiling Fits’ evolution into a fully formed band capable of being thoughtful and bratty, accessible and weird, and tackling it all with confidence, humor, and great hooks.
