Today we’re introduced to the sounds of 5-piece London band FAERS, made up of Morgan Rees, Ryan Faers, Steven Anderson – Howard, Sam Rawlings and Alex Crowley. The bandmates first met up at his popular weekly indie night Club Yuck in Uxbridge in early 2015. Named after his label, the event showcases groups he’s signed alongside guest DJ slots from established bands.
The London five-piece quickly bonded and later released their debut EP ‘WAVES’ in October that year. Before long they were selling out shows in London and Brighton and netting support slots with JAWS, Native People and The Cribs.
Having sold out Barfly, The Borderline, and single launches at The Water Rats and The Lexington, alongside appearances at the Y Not, Penn and Camden Rocks festivals, FAERS are rapidly growing a loyal fanbase thanks to their intriguing melange of afrobeat and psychedelic indie.
Kicking off their Elite Muzik debut, the FAERS present us with the new single “Last of our Kind,” written during a songwriting retreat to the welsh countryside, and recorded in Gothenburg with producer Anders Lagersford.
