RedFaces release their new single ‘Way Down’ today. Recorded at Miloco’s The Pool in London and produced by Carey Willetts (Athlete), the single showcases a slightly softer sound for the band, with synths and subtle nods to their R&B influences. Lyrically ‘Way Down’ is about dealing with personal change, while initially struggling, but eventually coming to terms with, and wishing you’d done it sooner.
Chosen by NME as one of their essential picks for 2018, the year is shaping up to be the bands busiest yet, having already played storming sets at Tramlines, Sound City and Hit The North festivals amongst others. Next week they play Cornwall’s Boardmasters Festival, before a main support tour with Reverend & The Makers in October (all dates below).
Praise for RedFaces recent releases has been widespread and ever growing. Take It Or Leave It’ was chosen as BBC Radio 1’s ‘Introducing Track Of The Week’ and MTV marked them out as a ‘One To Watch’, as well as being featured on C4 cult TV show Tattoo Fixers.
‘Messed Up Feeling’ received more support from Radio 1, and was added to Radio X’s ‘X-Posure’ playlist, with its accompanying video garnering heavy rotation on MTV Rocks and The Box, and current single ‘Way Down’ has seen continued support from Radio 1, with Huw Stephens giving the track it’s national debut on his evening show, more support from MTV Rocks and Channel 4, as well as Spotify including the track on a number of their official playlists including “The Indie List”.
