The Faim Release New Single “Summer Is A Curse”

Just in time for Summer, Australia’s latest export, The Faim, dropped a brand new track called “Summer Is A Curse.”  Co-written by Ashton Irwin from 5SOS, the new track is a sweeping emotional hit. When asked about the new song, “‘Summer Is a Curse’ is about taking the leap into a make or break situation that could grow into the beginning of a new era, or cause the end of what could’ve been. It’s about the paths that we take, the dreams that we have, and the things we leave behind to reach them.”

This is just the beginning for The Faim.  They’ve teamed up with Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy, TwentyOne Pilots’ Josh Dun, as well as legendary producer John Feldmann for their highly anticipated album!

The Faim just announced a string of tour dates with PVRIS in Australia in addition to dates with PVMNTS and The Dangerous Summer.  Check out the tour dates below and grab your tickets HERE before they sell out!

Somme Releases Debut Self Titled EP

Somme is ready to take the spotlight with her debut self titled EP.  Jordan Cantor, professionally known as Somme, has been playing guitar since she was 6, started writing songs a few years later, and then mastered the drums and bass by the tender age of 12. After performing in the indie rock band Traffic Bear in high school, Jordan enrolled in The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU but decided to take an internship at Killphonic in Los Angeles for first hand industry experience.  Since moving to LA, Jordan created her art-pop persona Somme and began writing what would be her debut EP.

Jordan Cantor embraces her new identity Somme, drawing inspiration from the greatest female songstresses and powerhouses like Robyn, Lorde, and of course Fleetwood Mac.  She spent a year and a half writing and recording songs for her debut and strips away layers exposing the most vulnerable parts creating a debut that is equal parts beautiful, heart wrenching, and soulful.

Watch the official video for “Ordinary Fool” below.

Stream her debut EP, SOMME on Spotify or grab a copy on iTunes or Amazon!

Artist To Watch: THE FAIM

The FAIM are taking the midland line all the way from Australia to steal every spot on your playlist in 2018.   Aptly described by Rock Sound Magazine as “coated in glorious sunshine,” the band’s latest track, “Midland Line” features a gold hued video to certify their Summer bop status.  The FAIM is comprised of lead singer Josh Raven, lead guitarist/bassist/vocalist Michael Bono, bassist/keyboardist Stephen Beerkens, and drummer/percussionist Sean Tighe.  The Faim’s first single, “Saints And Sinners” has a dark glam rock heavy twist while their latest two track, “Midland Line” and “Summer Is A Curse” are significantly lighter and brighter while still packing a punch.

Watch the official video for “Midland Line” below!

Starting Saturday April 21st, The FAIM are heading home to Australia to kick off a round of tour dates with Sleeping With Sirens and a few special dates with Tyler Posey’s latest project, PVMNTS, as well as playing some massive festival dates in Europe like the famed Download Festival, Reading and Leeds, and Slam Dunk!  Check out all of The FAIM’S tour dates below.
