Endand is a Brooklyn based power trio led by principal songwriter and guitarist Daniel Fern. Adventures of Fi in Space is a collection of nine songs divided as Adventures of Hi-Fi in Space and Adventures of Lo-Fi in Space.
There's really no distinction, or meaning, for that matter, here regarding Hi or Lo Fi. More accurately this is melodic alternative rock with clear hints of post grunge and punk. There's even some late-Eighties new wave essence as the songs Sweet or Labor Force remind me of the California band The 77's. Endand can rock hard at times which both Commando and Death Song prove.
Generally then there's a good mix of melodic rock here. Fern has a fine melodic vocal style and his guitar work isn't too shabby either. Adventures of Fi in Space will easily fit into and succeed in the underground alt music world. However, even with nine songs, in terms of musical length, it's a rather short-sided offering. Otherwise: recommended.
Endand, a Brooklyn rock trio, offer some interesting and entertaining melodic alternative rock on this brief disc.
