2016 has already seen FLAWES release their second EP, 'CTRL,' with support from The 405, The Independent, Sunday Brunch, Spotify, NME, Record of The Day and Music Week. The band have already played multiple shows including selling out their debut headline at The Sebright Arms (London). Looking forward, FLAWES will play at a host of festivals this year with more music on the horizon.
Beginning in 2015, FLAWES' early career took off explosively. Debut single "Don't Wait For Me" is continuing to amass thousands of streams weekly and has had support from across the board with a BBC Introducing / Radio 1 playlist, Line of Best Fit, Notion, Clash and New York Times online mentions and it's debut entry on the Spotify UK Viral Chart at #8. FLAWES spent the end of November supporting Ella Eyre on her UK tour.
Having spent years honing their crafts, childhood friends Josh Carruthers and Josh (Huss) Hussey alongside guitarist Freddie Edwards came together, whilst all working as session musicians, to start on a project that reflected their own musical ambitions. The outcome was a minimalist, pop influenced EP with soaring vocals and dark bass synths. Sat firmly in the alt-pop genre, the band's content is often based around real life experiences and evokes real emotion from the start. The live show helps to take the songs to the next level with perfectly executed live arrangements and visual production that is both simplistic and effective.
