FAIRCHILD will digitally release their debut 'Burning Feet' EP worldwide on Friday April 25th through Canvas Sounds. Produced & mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Howling Bells, Wolf Alice), the EP will also feature a KNDR remix of 'Dancer'. In anticipation of the release, the band have just put out a new music video for the title track 'Burning Feet' directed by their drummer James Haigh.

Although being their debut EP, the band have been around since 2005. Going through several line-up & name changes before re-launching themselves as 'FAIRCHILD' at the beginning of 2013. During this time, they have finished up their Asia Tour and supported the likes of Neon Indian, Kids of 88, Parachute Youth, Red Riders, Parades, Cassette Kids, Canyons, Pigeon, Battleships, The Khanz, Cub Sport & Northeast Party House. 

I want to be able to adequately describe their music but Fairchild's sound is hard to translate; I can say their music puts me in such a blissful mood when listening. Indie Shuffle says Fairchild "Sounds like Foals, Bloc Party, and The Temper Trap", but I say they may have bits and bobs of that sort of sound but Fairchild has successfully made their music that can't be compared too. Below they've got a couple of upcoming shows in the US, and I'm going to try to go to their show at one of my favorite bar/venue in Silverlake in May!
