Pennan Brae’s “Passing Fad” has a 1970s rock style, granted it by the killer guitar work and the on-point drums encountered in the first minute or so of the track. The dreamy vocals that Pennan lays down here stand over the instrumental fray. When Brae’s voice takes a break, a sizzling guitar line in the vein of Lynyrd Skynyrd builds up to some fantastic effect. Coming back into focus, Pennan’s lyrics ferry the story towards the song’s inevitable end. Passing Fad is one of the most cohesive efforts that we’ve heard from Pennan over the course of a few years. There’s a lot of replay value to Brae’s latest cut.
