The Pangs - Fighterplane

The Pangs' debut single 'Fighterplane' blends nicely edgy brass, woodwind and ghostly gospel parts seamlessly with a R 'n' B vocal melody and hip hop fuzz bass beat. The layering that brings this about is quite majestic and ensures the song carries itself with a good deal of commercial weight. Unfortunately the songwriting itself is a little bland compared with, say, a Gorillaz single.

B-side 'Warm Sand' is singer and songwriter Jim Wood performing live blues vocal and guitar, and although technically very impressive, may leave you yearning for Jeff Buckley to come take you away by the slowhand singing 'Satisfied Mind'.
