Meet Perth solo artist FAIT, celebrating the release of her debut EP, Atmosphere.
Tell us about about yourself?
I'm a musician from Perth, I play guitar and piano and I write atmospheric soundscapes. I've just released my debut EP Atmosphere, which was recorded in London and produced by Darren Lawson (MBV, Editors).
What kinda tunes we talkin’?
Think big walls of sound comprising of reverb-drenched guitars, strings, piano, driving bass and dramatic drums. If you like The Cure, Boards of Canada or My Bloody Valentine then it might be up your alley.
Layering is key! I start with a guitar riff, then think about a bass line or another guitar melody and build from there. I use Logic Pro to write which is great for experimenting with different sounds and textures.
Any shows coming up?
Yes, I have a very talented live band onboard who have helped me recreate these tracks in a live setting. We had a show last Friday at The Bakery, we're then at The Bird Saturday 2 August, before heading over east to play a handful of shows in Sydney and Melbourne:
What’s the rest of the year have in store?
An Eastern states tour and some more shows here in Perth!
Where can we hear more of your music?
