Fixers - Trans Love

Imperial Goddess of Mercy is the new 5 track EP from Oxford’s experimental psychedelic bad-jumper wearing pop five-piece Fixers. It’s released on Dec 5. Below we’re streaming a song from that EP - you can also download it for free in exchange for a 'like' from the bands facebook page. It’s called Trans Love and demonstrates that the group have obviously studied their Beach Boys collection very well. Amongst the swirling synth sounds, clattering percussion and sixties production references the band proclaim over and over how they’re in love with a tropical world. We’re not sure if this is a reference to one of the UK's most popular garden tourist attractions in Leeds or something a bit more profound. Either way it’s a song that will put a bit of summer into your heart as the northern hemisphere slides into winter.

With an album ready for 2012 release the band are playing an extensive UK tour throughout October to December including a date in the Oxford Ashmolean Museum on November 11. For those local to Breaking More Waves HQ they also play a free show at The Registry in Portsmouth on October 27.

Trans Love by Fixers.
