The Fauns reference shoegaze acts of the late 80s and early 90s with a 21st century slant. Fronted by Alison Garner, their sound is characterised by heavy use of distortion and feedback mixed with delicate vocal harmonies delivered with a pop edge.
The Fauns released their self titled debut album in 2009 which received across the board critical acclaim. Tracks have been featured on Steve Lamacq‘s BBC Radio 6 show whilst also featuring on the soundtrack to Boikzmoind, a short film by Aardman Animations.
The band have toured twice across Europe with ex Creation label legends The Telescopes. The Fauns have played alongside legendary bands such as The Durutti Column, Damon & Naomi (Galaxy 500), The Pastels and The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart.
Early 2013 will see the release of their follow up album on Geoff Barrow’s Invada Records label. To coincide with the release of the album there will be further tours and festival appearances for the band in the near future.
Symptomatic Presents ‘Freak Scene‘, our regular night of noise pop, shoegaze, psych and experimental sounds. Shades and stripy shirts optional…
