NEW SINGLE – ‘KELBY’
RELEASED – 20TH NOVEMBER 2015
LIVE DATE – THE SEBRIGHT ARMS, LONDON – 7TH NOVEMBER 2015
London three-piece, Fassine are set to release a new single on the 20th of November 2015.
‘Kelby’ is the follow-up to their recent debut ‘Sunshine’, released to critical acclaim in July and came with three distinct mixes from the likes of Julien Mier, Thirftworks and Jazzanova’s Alexander Barck & Comixxx.
In their own words “Kelby is an ascent to certification, a fear of desolation that breaks into euphoric discovery”. From shadowing claustrophobia to expansive skies, a stunning video titled ‘Chase’, from director Lily Baldwin, producer Sam Feder, stylist Olimpia Dior and starring model Edie Charles, accompanies the track.
Lyrically dark and musically complex, the group has a hint of Trent Reznor’s influence, alongside other cinematic qualities of UNKLE and Berlin-era Bowie. Fassine’s sound is one of striking imagery that dares the listener to enter the group’s own stark world. The new single is available to download and sets the tone ahead of their debut album ‘Dialectik’, set for release early 2016.
The band will also feature on artist Robot Koch’s haunting new track ‘Spine’, whilst their track ‘Bring the Weight Down’ from their forthcoming album, is used as the backdrop of Sky Atlantic’s hit US show The Following.
Fassine will play a London show at The Sebright Arms in Bethnal Green on Saturday the 7th of November, with more dates be announced soon.
LIVE DATE: NOV 07TH THE SEBRIGHT ARMS, LONDON E2
“Sunshine’ is an eerie and ominous introduction to the intriguing Fassine… the vocals are translucent against the dramatic atmosphere of cryptic synths and severe bass.’ (SPIN)
“Although we’re still a while off from the release off Fassine’s debut album Dialectik, we’re already super excited for it even if it’s half as good as its lead single Sunshine.” THE 405
‘Scenes of a bleak and beautiful place, it’s wavering, dense layers, and use of the sonic spectrum serve as a sustained, sobering assault on the senses’. (BBC)
‘A compelling mixture of soft, spiraling vocals and dark beats. They pull you
down to nothingness then fling you up with cinematic explosions’. (DIY Radio)
