The Fitness Call Me For Together
- Words: Julia Chan
- Label: The Control Group
By combining dancey synth beats with hard-edged guitar riffs (no way!), The Fitness is trying to pioneer "new" territory that's already been discovered and defiled. Although their melodies and lyrics are catchy and amusing, you can't help but sit there, twiddle your thumbs, and think about how many other bands they sound like. Ironically, The Fitness adamantly claims to be against NYC electroclash, a sound that they encompass right down to their distorted vocals and glitchy beats. But irony is hot right now, right?
