FAIRCHILD release BREATHLESS

Australian, Manchester-based, six-piece FAIRCHILD are set to continue their streak of 1980s musical praises with the release of new single ‘Breathless’ – a slow, sensual, four-to-the-floor rollick into unchartered territory. Produced by friend and collaborator Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice) and recorded on the Gold Coast, lead singer Adam Lyons was given the opportunity to oversee mixing at Assault and Battery Studios in London.
 
‘Breathless’ instigated a series of pre-production sessions, with each band member contributing ideas unhindered by genre expectations. FAIRCHILD worked individually and in small groups, at times swapping instruments, sharing half-baked riffs, beats, bites and grooves during an exacting four-month period of brainstorming and began to recognize parallels between their recordings and the songs of the 80s bands they’d always loved.
 
Speaking on the track, Adam Lyons explains, “Breathless is the most personal song I’ve ever written and it was built inside a computer. We didn’t play it as a band until we recorded live in studio with Catherine. The gap between creation and performance is what gives the song its personality. Or sexuality, as Catherine might say. In the studio we focused on presentation because the song was already there. It always had been.”
 
In February 2015, FAIRCHILD moved from Gold Coast, Australia to Manchester, UK to concentrate efforts on music without the distractions of home. Brothers Adam and Nathan Lyons have continued expanding their label and management company, Canvas Sounds, in their new city with a current string of fresh releases from each of their signed acts. ‘Breathless’ is part of this broader push by Canvas Sounds to encourage collaboration, support unsigned musicians and trial methods of songwriting and recording previously unexplored by its artists.
