electronic duo from Bristol.
Face + Heel aka Luke Taylor and Sinead McMillan started working together in Jan 2012 and have been gaining plaudits over the last 2 years – despite only having had two releases to date – the excellent ‘No Stars EP‘ on Warm Records. and Last year 'Chipped Tooth' E.P.
Having gained comparisons to acts such as The xx and having been tipped by the Boiler Room founders as the ones to watch last year after their acclaimed live set back in April, 2013 definitely looks set to be their year. They’ve already supported artists such as Blondes, Matthew Dear, Orbital, NZCA/Lines, Portico Quartet, AlunaGeorge and oOoOO in the last 18 months, and have tucked away some superb festival shows under their belts at the Great Escape, Lovebox, Garden Festival, L.E.V, and Simple Things. 2014 sees them currently working on a slew of new material.
“They manage to combine delicate piano and vocals with deep synths and rhythmic elements of house and garage to create ambitious and thoughtful live electronica.” (Crack Magazine)
“An elegiac instrumental featuring a percussion break resembling the distinct, metal-on-metal rattling of trains rolling over railroad switches, altogether building a song both earthbound and angelic.” (Fader)
“No Stars crafts a profound synth-heavy soundscape that is adorned with moaned, soulful vocals and sparse bassline, resulting in an immensely dark, forlorn and atmospheric ballad” (Dummy)
“intricate electronic compositions with an acute focus on songcraft” (XLR8R)
