"These Jeans (My Only Armour)" by Fractions prove that this band is charmingly stubborn about their sound. Although the other songs they have listed on unearthed are a good indication of their musical versatility, there is a common theme that runs throughout all the tracks - hunger.

"These Jeans (My Only Armour)" by Fractions prove that this band is charmingly stubborn about their sound. Although the other songs they have listed on unearthed are a good indication of their musical versatility, there is a common theme that runs throughout all the tracks - hunger. Millitant drum beats and catchy handclaps reel the listener in to the rhythm and make you want to stamp along. I imagine that this song is an apt representation of the difficulties in breaking into the Brisbane music scene and their want to make it big without compromise; unlike other bands who have come out of the same town. (Yves Klein Blue, please note and, perhaps, die in a hole...) The only problem I can see with the genre of music they are creating, with reference to the other tracks that I have heard via unearthed, is that there may be a small audience in Aus for them. On the other hand, this track could prove to be a bridge to and a winner with the more mainstream audience. On a purely technical note - HANDCLAPS FOR THE WIN!
