Track Of The Day: The Fauns - 'Seven Hours'

When December comes every year, new albums can sometimes slip under the radar due to the distractions of Christmas and us music journo folk focusing on our end-of-year lists. In my case, I somehow missed checking out an album by Bristol indie noisepoppers The Fauns entitled 'Lights', which was released at the end of 2013. It's not technically a new release, but because of it only coming to my attention recently, and of course due to it being wonderful, the blissful 'Seven Hours' is featuring as Track Of The Day. Through shoegazey guitars, hazy beams of colour crash through a beautifully explosive daydream as sweet, soft vocal tones drift across the surface with a cooling effect. Sublime stuff which means I'm DEFINITELY going to have to listen to that album now! 

I'm also featuring this because The Fauns have just announced a set of tour dates for the coming months, which can be found HERE. If you're anywhere near Ramsgate tonight (March 21) then you could do a lot worse than get yourself down to The Music Hall where the five piece are playing. The video for 'Seven Hours' was directed by John Minton, the man behind Portishead's live visuals and Savages' clip for 'Husbands'. The LP was released through Invada Records and was co-produced by well-respected Bristol figures Jim Barr and Tim Allen along-side the band’s own Michael Savage.
