HL London: The Extraordinary Faerground Accidents Release New Single “She Makes Me Want to Die”

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Signed to John Robb's Louder Than War Records, Faerground Accidents recently swept into my life, a parade of badly applied lipstick, gold cloaks, silver body paint and wine drunk straight from the bottle - and they've brought with them one of the most exciting new singles I've heard in ages!  

Visually presenting transgender, with strong hetero, honest and bewildering lyrics, comfortable in illusion, Faerground Accidents presents the dichotomy of love, lust, loss, lousy lovers and combustible combinations. The lead, Bomar Faery, reminiscent of an early Boy George, has the presence of drag and the words of hetero, a pan sexual cross.

'She Makes Me Want to Die' has already received it's first radio play from BBC 6 Music's Radcliffe and Maconie, who it seems are just as bewitched by this band as I am.  The combination of sharply observed and brilliantly written lyrics, perfectly delivered by lead singer Bomar Faery over a boisterous ride through Brit Pop influenced guitars and keys had me pressing play as soon as the track had finished, in part because there's so much to see in the video (released at 7.23 this morning, for reasons that remain a mystery) that one watch is simply not enough!

I'd love to get your feedback on this, and as ever interviews and live sessions are invited, high res photos are available.  Tuesday just got an awful lot brighter!

Faerground Accidents
She Makes Me Want to Die
Louder Than War Records
9 February 2015

'She Makes Me Want to Die' is the story of a relationship breaking up, but in place of bleak reflection the track is driven by kinetic, aggressive and infectious energy.

This is a tale of explosive arguments at 3am, of being pushed almost to the brink by the pervasive toxicity of the situation - but juxtaposing this unhappy subject matter, Faerground Accidents have produced a wonderfully upbeat early Brit Pop style classic with echoes of Suede and Pulp, underpinned by the influences of Bowie and Soft Cell.

With style, wit and vigor, Faerground Accidents exploded onto the UK's music scene in late 2014 when their double A side single 'We Hate the Same Things/Back in Town' was enthusiastically championed by BBC 6 Music's Marc Riley and Steve Lamacq, Absolute Radio's Frank Skinner and Amazing Radio's Shell Zenner and Charlie Ashcroft amongst many others.  This attention led to the band supporting the hotly tipped Sleaford Mods at Sheffield Academy as well as playing with legendary punk outfit The Membranes in London.

Originally formed in Manchester in 2012, the band's demos caught the attention of Louder Than War Records' founder John Robb who described them as "stunningly original and beautifully odd"  adding "if this band are not massive by summer then you're all deaf!"  

Captivated by front man Bomar Faery, John Robb summed him up as being "borderline psychotic and quite definitely genius!" However, less than 48 hours later, Bomar was admitted to a psychiatric facility and the band's future looked uncertain.

Following his release, Bomar returned to Sheffield and set about reforming the band with Artery's Marray Fenton, Loveboat's Dan Botterill, Dodgem's drummer Michael Breeze and original Manchester based member, Henrietta Rowlatt on keyboards.  Now signed to Louder Than War Records, Faeground Accidents are one of this year's most vibrant and exciting prospects.

"A scintillating, shimmering, swathe of sexual charged swagger pop."
Mark Radcliffe (BBC 6 Music & BBC Radio 2)
 
"Absolutely wonderful… [Bomar] He's gorgeous!"
Jon McClure of Reverend & The Makers (Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 6 Roundtable)
 
"I like this…"
Frank Skinner (Absolute Radio)
 
"Acidic and grand songs laced with arsenic lyrical wit and melodies full of grandeur'
John Robb (Louder Than War)
 
"An eclectic group that merges the fey eroticism of Pulp with the solid chops of a machismo rock band. Faerground Accidents have managed to forge a distinctive style that's both enigmatic and direct. And, quite frankly, that I can't get enough of!"
Lee Adcock (Dandelion Radio)
