‘Fear of Flying’ is a new single from Swaying Wires who began as a one-woman project by Tina Kärkinen in 2008 in Turku, Finland before developing into a band in 2010 when Sami Lehtonen and Nicklas Hägen joined, then after performing in and around Turku the band settled to its current line-up when joined by drummer Jussi Virkkumaa. Beginning in the summer of 2012 Swaying Wires started recording material for what would become there debut full-length album, ‘Some Blue Sky’ which is to be released in March through Battle Worldwide Recordings, if the singles a gauge then the full album will be a real treat, loving the combination of Tina’s airy vocal, the open arrangements and reverb and I’m not on my own as the single has already got some airplay on 6Music courtesy of Steve Lamacq.
Single from The Fauns current album Lights, the track Seven Hours is out on Invada Records on March 10th, the video is directed by John Minton, the man behind Portishead’s live visuals. The Bristol based band have a a trio of UK shows lined up:
