New Music Friday is a weekly post that highlights the best new music of the week. This week’s edition features both well-known and under the radar bands we think deserve a spin (or three), so give them all a listen. Whether you like pop-punk, progressive metal, indie rock, or anything in between, we think there’s plenty to sink your teeth into here. Especially that new Boston Manor record – a real stunner. Oh, and we’re including some exceptional new singles, too.
With just 2 songs to their name currently, Australia alt-pop/rock newcomers The Faim are a band that’s shooting for the stars, to be sure. Currently, the band is in the UK on a number of support dates, including with Lower Than Atlantis right now, and show no signs of slowing down. All of these accolades, despite being from Perth – one of the most isolated cities in the world.
We chatted it up with Stephen Beerkens (bass, keyboard), who took the time to discuss living in Perth, some important Australian albums, and even how social media has been a key aspect in their rapid growth. Check out his answers below, along with their recent video for breakout single “Saints Of The Sinners”. Stephen’s answers are in italics. The band is comparable to established acts like Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, and The 1975, but with a sound all their own – a catchy pop sound that is also appealing to fans of alternative rock.
