THE FAIM have shared HUMANS, the first single from their forthcoming debut album, STATE OF MIND, which will be released on 13 September via BMG. The track was produced with Patrick Morrisey [Weezer, Pharrell] and David Dahlquist [Aurora, Fletcher] in New York and Los Angeles, and includes a great balance of unique pop-rock sounds, rounded out with lush live elements and a massive, resonant chorus.

The band explain: “Humans is about embracing the unique qualities that make up who we are, from our individual character and personality traits, to our strengths and weaknesses. These diverse characteristics, and how they evolve throughout our lives, show us what it means to be human and how connected we all actually are.”

 

THE FAIM unveiled their debut EP, SUMMER IS A CURSE, last year and wasted no time in creating music for their first full length album STATE OF MIND. Over the course of two years, the group worked with numerous producers to craft a collection of songs that showcase a vast range of styles and tones. The tracks, recorded mostly in various studios in Los Angeles, reveal how THE FAIM have evolved since their inception. The lyrics come from emotions and experiences personal to the musicians as a whole, with each song centering on an idea that’s relatable to both themselves and their listeners. STATE OF MIND reveals a band on the rise, and a group of artists who are all about making genuine songs that bring people together and create a community.

 

We write from an honest place, and that’s something we always want to stay true to,” says front man Josh Raven. “It has to resonate with us for it to be relatable to our fans. On this album, it was about connecting with ourselves and exploring our influences and our own talent. If we stick to who we are and what we feel, hopefully everyone else will find something in the music too.”

  

STATE OF MIND includes eight brand new songs in addition to the previously released singles SUMMER IS A CURSE and AMELIE. If you were able to catch THE FAIM on tour in the UK earlier this year, you may also have heard them play BEAUTIFUL DRAMA and INFAMOUS, two additional standout songs on the album.
