San Francisco-based psych pop-rockers The Fresh & Onlys are known for their hazy songs. Led by principal songwriter Tim Cohen, The Fresh & Onlys produce a sun-drenched revivalist sound, that when matched with the band’s looks – unkempt, long-hair, unshaven beards – harkens back to the 70s.
It is a bit of a change then, with the band’s newest offering and fourth overall, Long Slow Dance, that the band harkens even further back – to the bygone era of the 40s and 50s. As can be inferred from the album title, the songs from Long Slow Dance all imbue a lost sense of romanticism that is missing from a lot of songs nowadays. And the guys from The Fresh & Only, unkempt appearance and all, does it oh so well.
