Australian six-piece FAIRCHILD are set to continue their string of 1980s musical praises with the release of trailblazing new single ‘Relevance’ – an intoxicating pastiche of new wave and dance rock bombast, masterfully captured and repolished to a 21st century sheen by producer/mixer Catherine Marks (Foals, The Killers, Wolf Alice). Interlacing austere guitar riffs with murky synths and an uncharacteristic tenor croon from singer Adam Lyons, ‘Relevance’ revs its engines and spins its wheels before leaving the listener in a haze of scorching rubber and desert dust. Adam Lyons states, “In the studio I remember thinking ‘how I sing on [Relevance] is much more important than the words coming out of my mouth.’ The instrumental had no discernible chord changes in the verses and I knew my vocal needed to act as a linchpin to hold the track together. This wasn’t necessarily a question of lyrical subject matter or even melody, but performance. Those opening lines are all bluster and bravado but there’ s honesty there too. Where one ends and the other begins isn’ t really relevant.”Channeling the restless groove-ability of Talking Heads and the dance floor sensibilities of INXS - FAIRCHILD are keeping their cards close to their chest on what is to come in 2017. Now based in Manchester, UK, the band recently embarked on a nation-wide tour with MOTHXR and is set to support The Human League on their A Very British Synthesizer Group Tour. FAIRCHILD have released three EPs and multiple singles, including ‘ Breathless’ , which has clocked over 180,000 plays on Soundcloud. They’ ve toured through Asia, Australia, North America, Europe and the UK including multiple festival appearances and supporting the likes of Mutemath, Neon Indian, Parachute Youth, Kids of 88 & Cub Sport.
