Ascending Northern Wales Alternative duo ‘faltered’ nationally release their debut mini-album ‘Fortune Favours’ through all digital outlets on Monday 2nd September.
From a small, unassuming village in Wales, come ‘faltered’. United by a love of alternative and post hardcore bands, blood brothers Daniel (Guitars, Vocals) and Conor Cahalane (Drums, Percussion and lead Vocals) fuse the heavy aggression of early Nirvana meshed with the twisted groove of Biffy Clyro; yet the dynamo duo make their own mark, evidenced in the shape of their brand new hotly-tipped mini-album, ‘Fortune Favours’.
Having scoured the local vicinity for suitable band members, all to no avail, brothers Conor and Dan Cahalane decided to form the band as a duo and swiftly went about rehearsing and recording their debut EP in 2012 called ‘Victorian Post Mortem Photography’. Well received shows throughout the North West and a growing fan base soon followed as the assiduous combo continued to pen further songs for their next release.
Now the band have completed work on their new mini-album ‘Fortune Favours’ and it’s the perfect soundtrack for the Summer; that’s assuming you like the idea of Biffy Clyro handling the BBQ, Hundred Reasons cleaning the pool, and Reuben manning the bar! From the intriguing math-rock rhythms of their opener ‘Leave It Out’, to the off kilter hard-hitting riffage of ‘Fortune Favours The Needy’, to the abundantly melodic ‘Thanks A Million’, faltered have proven themselves inventive and accessible, and have amalgamated a sound that is poignant and ambitious. The post-hardcore crew have assembled a live line up and have UK dates in the pipeline for later this year; just watch them climb.
