New Music: Flawes - Consolation
“I need a little more than consolation lately, I need a little more than words to stay all through the night,” sings Josh Carruthers as the chorus of Flawes’ new tune bursts forward amongst a wash of supermassive and alive electronics. As you can probably tell from those lyrics the song isn’t all about the joys of life and romance though. Instead it covers that time and feeling of being in a relationship, knowing it’s not right, and yet despite that both people seem trapped and unable to leave. Sad faces all round for the situation, smiley ones for the music.
Consolation is the follow up to the impressive debut Don’t Wait For Me (which I featured last year) which received airplay on Radio 1 and entered the Spotify UK Viral Chart at number 8. The band has a recent London Club NME show under their belt, a slot at Live at Leeds to follow and their first headline show at London’s Sebright Arms scheduled for April 14th.
Also worth checking out is their excellent cover version of Halsey’s Hold Me Down (here) recorded for Sofar London, which shows Flawes' talent off rather well.
