Dublin-based band Four Faces are releasing their latest single, ‘Old Scars’ May 10th. The new track blends indie rock with pop sensibilities and is an exhilarating anthem that delves into themes of broken relationships and self-reflection. The chant-like chorus of voices underpinned by a tribal beat is an infectious dance-esque groove layered with vocal and instrumental hooks that propels the song forward.
The release of ‘Old Scars’ will see Four Faces play their biggest headline show yet in The Workman’s Cellar on 12th May, in collaboration with MCD Productions. Buy tickets here – https://theworkmansclub.com/

The lyrics of ‘Old Scars’ tackle the challenges of adulthood and relationships, with lines such as “twenty-something with no goals” and “the clock runs” suggesting that old scars will eventually give way to a new start. The band’s sound has evolved on this track, with a slicker production approach and the incorporation of electronic music, adding layers of lush synths, vocal effects, and ambience.
Recorded and produced at The Clinic Recording Studios, ‘Old Scars’ was mixed and mastered by Aidan Cunningham, who has worked with Four Faces in the past. Guitarist Eoin Butterfield says that the song started out as a simple electronic beat that he made in his shed, but it soon became an anthem about healing and togetherness with a whole new energy.
Over the past year, Four Faces has been gigging relentlessly around some of Dublin’s most iconic venues, such as Whelan’s, The Workman’s Club, and Anseo. The band was also selected for the Whelan’s ‘Ones to Watch’ showcase in January. With this new single the band look forward to a busy 2023 with more live dates and new music!
