FOMO Single Artwork (Hi Res).jpgMelbourne-based folk/Americana duet Great Aunt have released ‘FOMO’, the first single from their forthcoming debut LP, So Not Right Now, which is due for release in November 2019.

The term FOMO, for the uninitiated, means ‘fear of missing out’, which can become a compulsion – that is, some people get so caught on the idea that they’re missing out on something that FOMO dictates how and what they do. In the single Great Aunt have conjured that feeling of compulsion through hypnotic slide guitar, heartbeat-like double bass and vocals that sound tentative yet defiant. It’s a clever, effective use of sound to reinforce lyric, and it makes for an irresistible song that, in its own way, becomes addictive.
