We’re delighted to be helping Faitala launch their debut single!

Faitala-Castle-Manchester

Manchester-based three-piece Faitala are set to release their debut single on Tiny Records on 27 November.

Beasts, produced by Tom Lonsbrough (Paper Recordings), sees the band take on a more synth-led electronic sound. The single will be released on CD, digitally and as a limited edition ten-inch vinyl.

Formed just over a year ago, the Faitala line-up of David (guitar / vocals), Emma (synth), and Oli (Drums) were invited to play a live session on Marc Riley’s BBC 6 Music show after he saw the band play at one of their very early live shows.

The infectious pop of the yet-to-be-released Plush, from that three-song session, was subsequently picked up and played extensively by fellow DJs Tom Robinson on his Music Introducing Mixtape, Gideon Coe and XFM’s John Kennedy.

Faitala are set to play this hometown show at The Castle Hotel on Oldham Street, and will announce further UK live dates to coincide with the single release soon.

Main support comes from Lancaster’s Lake Komo.

Lynch will open the show.

The first 20 people through the door will receive a special goodie bag!
