The next best thing to come out of Sheffield since Arctic Monkeys? Indie-rock quartet RedFaces certainly live up to that comparison with the latest single Kerosene. With one of the best bass lines you’ve heard in a long time, instantly recognisable vocals and a melody that you’ll be humming for days; it’s shouldn’t come as a surprise why RedFaces are one of the rising new bands of 2017.
With various festivals booked for the summer, as well as new singles on the way, lead singer and guitarist Harry Lyon spoke to GIGsoup about their Dot To Dot performance, Manchester and slap bass solos.
Have you played D2D before and how are you feeling about performing there?
Nope. Although we can’t wait to play it!
Which city are you most looking forward to playing? (Manchester, Bristol, Nottingham)
On our last tour we played Manchester and it was one of my favourite nights, so probably Manc. It’s a tough choice though as we’ve great gigs in all three.
From the initial line up, who are you most excited to see?
Honeyblood and The Growlers. Haven’t seen them live before and they’ve got good tunes.
Congratulations on your new single ‘Kerosene’, how does it feel to release it into the world?
It’s ace to have a song out and see it making progress. It got added to a few playlists and to see it alongside bigger artists is a great feeling.
This is one of the first festivals of the year, what was the first festival you went to?
One the first festivals we went to and played at was Birchover Festival. It’s a little thing they do on a campsite in Derbyshire. We played ‘She’s Electric’, ‘Katie Come Home’ and ‘Band on the Run’ and there was about 10 little toddlers loving it down the front.
If you had to choose one city to stay in for the rest of your life, what would it be?
What can we expect from you in the next few months?
Hopefully a couple of singles and then just hitting the festival season. We are really excited for this year.
Why should fans make the effort to catch your set?
Because Isaac is gonna do a massive slap-bass solo!
