2018 may have saw the final year of Warped tour, but by no means is pop punk anywhere near dead. Inspired by the likes of Panic! At The Disco, Metallica, and Fall Out Boy, Australian band The Faim makes music that runs the gamut from indie rock to pop punk. It is an utterly infectious blend. It is the quartet’s distinctive take on pop-minded rock that not only caught out eyes and ears of Ones To Watch, but also the attentino of one John Feldmann (Goldfinger) as well.
Feldmann, who came to discover The Faim following an open call for unsigned bands on his Instagram, is only one of the heavyweights in the music industry who have recognized the band’s early promise. The aforementioned renowned musician and producer, who has worked with the likes of Blink-182 and Panic! At The Disco, produced The Faim’s debut EP, Summer Is a Curse. Joined by the likes of Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Twenty One Pilots’ Josh Dun, Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, and 5 Seconds of Summer’s Ashton Irwin, The Faim’s debut marked the first chapter in what is bound to be a grand story of one of alternative rock’s greatest bands.
