Emerging Australian pop-rock quartet THE FAIM are excited to kick off 2019 with their new single FIRE. Forbes premiered the track and described it as, “a driving, indie-pop earworm with potential to take hold of an arena-sized crowd”. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Linus [blink-182, 5 Seconds of Summer, Palaye Royale] the song is saturated with addictive pop-beats and dazzling guitar riffs, with the spotlight on front man Josh Raven’s soaring vocals. FIRE captures the band’s infectious, magnetic sound that has been building momentum and resonating with fans across the globe.
According to Josh, “The concept behind Fire is about how dedicating yourself to achieve your dream can affect your relationships with those closest to you, be it family, friends or loved ones. When you fully believe in something that you’re working towards, it can become an addiction. You become so focused on what you plan to achieve that you lose sight of what’s happening around you. This is what ‘fire’ refers to in the song; that burning passion to create, to express ourselves and to grow as musicians, that we can’t put out even if we tried”.
After a short holiday break following the band’s inaugural USA tour last year, THE FAIM wasted no time getting back on the road. The four-piece recently finished the Australian leg of their first ever headline run, resulting in sold out shows in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and their hometown of Perth. Their European headline tour then commenced at the end of January with many dates completely selling out, including London, Southampton, Birmingham, Amsterdam, Cologne and Hamburg.

THE JAPANESE HOUSE has shared WE TALK ALL THE TIME, the latest track to be released from her debut album, GOOD AT FALLING, which will be released via Dirty Hit on 1 March.
“It’s about noticing a relationship dying, or changing, whatever way you want to view it” explains Amber Bain [aka The Japanese House] of the deceptively upbeat WE TALK ALL THE TIME. “It was one of those weird, prophetic songs where I write it down, and then it happens in real life. It’s not because I can tell the future, it’s because I’m creating it, or maybe I can sense it’s going to happen.”
To celebrate the release of GOOD AT FALLING, Amber has announced that she will also visit three Rough Trade stores across the country for live acoustic performances. These intimate shows follow her 12 date European tour and come ahead of her UK tour in March. For further ticket information, visit: http://thejapanesehouse.co.uk/tour/
