Flawes - New Waves
Time for a new band; after all it’s been a while. In fact you’ll have to go back to the 13th August to find the last time we introduced a totally new act here on Breaking More Waves. So now we’re making amends and starting with a brand new London based trio called Flawes. Here’s the low down:
1. Flawes debut track Don’t Wait For Me is rather excellent. It has an acoustic bluesy feel to it in places, but there’s also some dreamy electronic production giving it a crisper modern ambient feel. There’s probably some sort of genre name for this sound, but you can probably come up with something better than blu-folk-tronica which is all we’ve managed.
2. They’re supporting Ella Eyre on her UK tour. Now whilst Ella is very talented, having recently seen her live we’ve come to the conclusion that she needs to grab a few more ideas. There’s only so many times you can stomach THAT Rudimental beat and some ‘woah-oh-ohs’ vocals. Now we realise that this paragraph isn’t really about Flawes and more about Ella, but the point is, if you are going to see Ella, get there early. Or even better, if you’re in London, sell your Ella ticket, buy a ticket for Flawes debut show in Hoxton on 19th October and use the spare money you’ll then have for a couple of beers.
3. The promo pic above goes for the ‘we’re serious about our music’ impression doesn’t it? No lounging around in a bath half naked with silly smiles on their faces here. No it’s all blurry images and earnest stares. Mind you the song seems to be about splitting up with a girlfriend, so it’s probably not befitting to have a big cheesy thumbs up style photo.
4. Apparently there’s lots more to come from this lot, so we recommend staying alert.
5. Flawes are Josh Carruthers on vocals and keys, Freddie Edwards on guitar and another Josh, Josh Hussey on drums.
6. Don't Wait For Me is taken from Flawes debut EP Unspkn due 23rd October.
