A band used to playing dingy basements and rooms filled with rowdy pits, Fuzz Lightyear have made a mark filling venues in Leeds and further afield. In large part due to their hard-hitting songwriting and boisterous live energy the band grew a devoted fandom who followed them from house parties to sold out shows. As their sounds evolved to incorporate influences ranging from Sonic Youth to Deftones, from Nirvana to Show Me the Body, they developed a noise-grunge sound that stood strong in a post-punk age

As lockdowns trapped them in those environments, though, the band decided to move from writing and recording in mold-ridden basements to go into a repurposed church in the North of England. Working with Alex Greaves (LICE, bdrmm, YOWL) the band recorded "Berlin, 1885", a snarling statement decrying the rising wave of xenophobic hate we face internationally. As members hail from around the world, the statement of the track sits at the heart of the band's ethos.

With the experience of working with Alex Greaves and a honed live sound, the group went on to self produce their next single, Carlton Hill. An unforgettably hooky track recounting an ultimately forced relationship, the track is the band at their strongest.
