At this point, London-based Flawes doesn’t really need much of a push from us. After a “Track of the Week” selection from BBC Radio 1, smashing up Spotify’s Viral Charts, and getting massive air time on Fox’s hit television series “Lie To Me,” the world already has their ears fixated on this impressive up-and-coming band.
The two-track selection we’re offering up below should be more than enough to get your feet wet. In all honesty, you’ll pry dive head in after the first track, much like we did, giving in to larger-than-life nature of both “Consolation” and “Don’t Wait for Me.”
Before you get your suit on, know that these are two massively different tracks, even though they fall into the same neat little box, stylistically. “Consolation” reminds us a little bit of one of our favorite artists, Jack Garratt, showcasing a powerful range of vocals behind artfully crafted basslines, guitar samples, and rhythmic percussion.
Conversely, “Don’t Wait For Me” has a more delicate nature to it, brought forth by digitally treated acoustic guitar riffs. It has an air around it that could easily cross over between a dusty, middle-America saloon, and high-end speakers from the most discerning music snobs.
That’s the beauty in these tunes though – they cross over effortlessly, bringing a massive appeal to those who don’t have their head buried in the music blogosphere and those that do. And, for us, we can’t help but think that’s a recipe for tremendous success.
You can find these two on the bands EPs, Ctrl and Unspkn, which are both out via Red Bull Records.
