Flawes’ modern take on timeless pop put them on the map from the very beginning, resulting in a famous fan in the shape of Billie Eilish, sessions with Finneas, repeated support from Radio 1 and performances at Reading and Leeds. Having just finished as guests on Tom Grennan’s European tour, Flawes’ return this year has been better than ever with the singles ‘Don’t Blame Me’, ‘Is It Any Wonder?’, ‘Tears Won’t Show’ and ‘Satellite’ – today they release their eagerly anticipated sophomore album ‘One Step Back, Two Steps Forward’. Listen HERE. The album release will be celebrated with an in-store at Banquet Records tomorrow and a headline show at COLORS in London on 22nd June.
‘One Step Back, Two Steps Forward’ is a driving-with-the-top-down record, their slick, uplifting sound powered by propulsive rhythms, yearning guitars and choruses that soar. Informed by an attitude that every moment matters, it’s a record which wastes no time in unveiling its direct yet nuanced pop charms. Not a single song lingers until the four-minute mark, creating a breathless momentum that feels like an instant greatest hits collection. 

The new single ‘Give Me Your Worst’ depicts a sour end to a relationship where the other party isn’t willing to “go down without a fight”, instead doing everything in their power to make things difficult. Written with Thom Powers of The Naked and Famous, ‘Give Me Your Worst’ ironically shows the band at their best and boldest. 
Josh adds, “‘Give Me Your Worst’ was a collaboration with Thom Powers of ‘The Naked And Famous’. We’re all fans of his music and were super excited to get the opportunity to work together while over in LA. We really pushed ourselves in the studio and came out with a song that feels fresh and exciting to the three of us. We experimented with a bunch of new production techniques and love how it came out. We also got to play this one live while supporting Tom Grennan recently and it really came alive!
