“Infused with ambition, Fairchild blend frenetic, post-punk inspired drumming with anthemic songwriting” Clash
“It's an accessible sound with dreamy guitar lines and effortlessly smooth vocals that almost anyone can find something to like in” The 405
“Nom de Guerre” contains all the frustration and clamour as Foals, but with traces of sweetness possessed by bands like Friendly Fires. Indie Shuffle
Following the release of their ‘Sadako’ EP last year, and their relocation to the UK, Australian outfit Fairchild have announced details of their new double A-side single ‘Hot Rod/Nom De Guerre’.
Originally hailing from the Gold Coast, Fairchild upped sticks to Manchester in February, where they’ve all split between houses and live within the same few roads.
Though the grey skies of the UK may be home now, ‘Nom De Guerre’ carries a vibrant spirit in its pounding beat, laidback vocals web of sundrenched riffs and keys. While ‘Hot Rod’ surges forward with a heavy wall of sound and lingering keys, bringing a dark, brooding atmosphere.
The single is released on 22nd June on their own label Canvas Sounds, with both tracks produced by Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice) at Australia’s Luna Studios and mixed at London's Assault & Battery Studios. Marks also worked on their debut EP ‘Burning Feet’ which was released in April 2014. They quickly followed this up with the self-produced 'Sadako' EP in November 2014.
Having previously supported the likes of Flume, Neon Indian, Parachute Youth and The Griswolds, as well as also having toured through Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and North America - the band are fast building their live profile in the UK.
Upcoming live dates
June 23rd - Night and Day Cafe, Manchester
July 6th – Servant Jazz Quarters, London
Fairchild are Adam Lyons (vocals), Nathan Lyons (Keys), Patrick Huerto (Guitar), Tim Voeten (Guitar), Tommy Davies (Bass) and James Alexander (drums).
