Flawes have released their long-awaited new EP ‘Reverie’. ”Reverie’ is a project which began in the initial lockdown, each band member working remotely with producers to craft the EP, which is full of energy and the optimism we all need right now.
Frontman JC Carruthers says, “When there’s so much stuff going on in the world, this EP can help you escape for thirty minutes. In that small way, it feels really empowering. I’m generally a very optimistic person and my glass is always half full, but when I’ve got stuff on my mind I can put it into a song and leave this world behind.”
Positivity and perseverance are two traits that stand proud throughout Flawes’ recent singles ‘Higher Than Before’, ‘What’s A Boy To Do’ and ‘Holding Out For The Win’
The first new track ‘I Don’t Quit For No One’ offers a different mood to the band’s effervescent recent singles, as it moves from introspective verses into a textured, intricate production that echoes Massive Attack. Inspired by JC’s commitment to music, it’s a motivational message of sticking to your ambitions regardless of what the doubters might say.
“Continuing the theme of the whole Reverie EP; ’I Don’t Quit For No One’ is an uplifting, self-empowering song, refusing to allow peoples negative opinions to get me down” JC explains. “The song looks ahead positively towards potential good times. I’m not going to quit no matter what anyone says or does.”
In celebration of the release, Flawes will be taking to the stage once again for an exclusive free live stream performance at London’s Lafayette via YouTube. Dubbed ‘A Night Of Reverie’, the show will include tracks from the EP as well as their debut album ‘Highlights’ and will take place on Tuesday, March 2nd at 8:00pm GMT. Tune in at www.flawes.com
