The Faim have been making big waves, touring hard and doing it the old fashioned way grafting on the road supporting the likes of Lower Than Atlantis and more recently on their recent Headline Tour across the UK.
Now they have finally dropped their debut full-length album State Of Mind, it’s the culmination of years of fine-tuning and well worth the wait. The album showcases the band’s maturity and growth over the years with a fine collection of beautifully written tracks that are delivered with class. These guys have put together a debut album that can mix it with the best out there, the established big boys who rule the roost and have an army of fans who are looking for another outlet. The Faim are one such outlet that will appeal far and wide amongst the fans of bands like Panic At The Disco, Fall Out Boy and the likes.
The album ebb’s and flows beautifully with a collection of superb tunes that are highly addictive from the off, packed with highs and lows each track takes you on a sonic rollercoaster across ten killer tracks, one after another each track is bigger than the last, production is beautiful to enhance the experience, multi-layered you are totally enveloped in the majestic production to get fully immersed in every nuance and subtlety that The Faim have poured their hearts and soul into.
State Of Mind is more than just a debut album; it’s a statement of intent from the Australian quartet that will be a springboard to far bigger things. With such a strong introduction to the game, there is definitely a new player in town to shake things up and a welcome addition to the party.
State Of Mind is out now via BMG and via all DSP’s.
