Future Faces-Revolt EP (2017)

Country: Switzerland
Genre: Post Punk, Cold Wave, Synthwave
Label: Throatruiner Records
Tracks: 4
Length: 25.40'

On their debut EP "Revolt", Switzerland's FUTURE FACES delivers some glacial post-punk of the gloomiest order, with a level of mastery rarely heard on a band's first recording. Formed in 2015 in Geneva by members of Equus and Elizabeth, the three-piece aims for a timeless, personal sound, devoid of any soulless revivalism. Mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Beastmilk, Okkultokrati…), these four tracks find the perfect balance between the clean and the noisy. With hypnotic drums, abyssal bass lines, elegant yet unpolished guitar work and reverb-drenched vocals, each track is a lesson in stand-out songwriting. "Revolt" is a slow descension into a lightless, enveloping sound, and the birth certificate of a band that is nothing but full of promises. (Press Note)

*Damn!  This is some really well-done post punk, cold wave, and synthwave from Geneva, Switzerland's Future Faces.  Overall, Revolt makes for an awesome listen and definitely should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Revolt was released via Throatruiner records on May 26th, 2017.
