Under the Radar: Fiendz YT

Fiendz YT have been garnering some well-deserved attention in the past few months, with several prominent blogs getting behind the young Glasgow four piece, not to mention a reasonable amount of streams on Spotify.

Their first tracks released to date boast various shades of punk, with Speed In My Coffee sounding like something from the early days of The Stranglers. Devil Dawg, meanwhile, combines fat chords with an injection of synth and even a hint of Psychobilly.


This week sees the release of their latest EP, Spread Love, Smoke Spice – an ironic ode too the synthetic cannabinoid which continues a theme in the band’s amusing lyrical and social media content.
