FAULT Favourites Band of Skulls release third album, ‘Himalayan’

 

band of skulls himalayan

FAULT first spoke to lead singer and bassist Emma Richardson  back in 2011 to discuss the release of their breakthrough second album, Sweet Sour for FAULT Issue 10: the Legacy Issue. From their early days touring as Fleeing New York in the late noughties, we knew that this was a band to watch, one that would stand the test of time. Here’s what we wrote about them back then:

From their relatively recent incipience in 2008, the female fronted, blues heavy, old fashioned raw and ready rock outfit are perhaps rivalled only by the Black Keys, both in terms of their ‘old school’ guitar-heavy style and their similarly meteoric rise to fame. In one dazzling swoop, these groups have utterly dismissed that old (circa 2006) adage that ‘guitar music is dead’ – with Emma Richardson, Russell Marsden and Matt Hayward doing so in particularly impressive style. The Brits have been ‘cracking the US’ in such an accomplished fashion that they have drawn comparisons from some quarters to rock legends Led Zeppelin. With their pulverizing basslines and soaring – yet oddly searing – vocals, Band of Skulls are a firm FAULT Favourite.

Now, three years later, we were pleased to get a chance to catch up with drummer Matt Hayward about the highly anticipated release of their third album, the brilliantly constructed Himalayan.

 

Welcome back to FAULT! How are you feeling about the new album?

Matt: We’re really proud of the record that we’ve come up with and we’re feeling really good about it. It’s been quite frustrating because we finished it at the end of last summer so we’ve had it in our hands for quite a while now but it’s finally upon us now so we’re very excited!

How does the new album differ from your last two?

We’ve said is that it kind of takes elements from the last two albums and makes a record out of that. Whilst we were writing and recording the last two albums we isolated ourselves out in the countryside in an old farmhouse and this time we decided to go in to central London and I think that definitely rubs off on the record. There’s an energy about being in London which is great, we were going in every day and then being able to leave the studio too which gives you a lot more objectivity about things, you can listen to your demos on the train home and all these little things which we never had before so I think that played a big part in the sound of it.

Do you have any favourites or standout tracks on the new album?

It chops and changes, it always changes by night really. It’s interesting that a lot of it is down to crowd responses, it’s funny the ones that you get different reactions from and not always reactions you were expecting. At the moment, we’re just really excited to play any of it really, it’s been such a long time we’re just itching to get going.

When we spoke about your last album you cited The Beatles, Neil Young and Bob Dylan as influencers, are these still relevant to the new album or have you found inspiration elsewhere?

We have a pretty strong rule in the studio that we don’t play a lot of current music whilst we’re recording because we’re keen not to have anything influence us too heavily.

We listen to a bunch of different stuff, there’s definitely a glam element to this record. When we got in to the studio we hung out for a few days with our producer Nick Launay and played our favourite records, there was definitely a theme of T-Rex swagger, and everyone bringing in Prince albums.

When you’re piecing songs together, creating new music do you envisage an ideal setting in which it will be played back? Where would you like your music to be heard?

For me, my favourite time is listening to music is on aeroplanes. I get a real kick out of it, that excitement and nervousness of travelling. You’re on your way to somewhere and to have a soundtrack to that sort of emotion is quite similar to playing shows in a way, it’s exciting it’s nerve-wracking, and full of adrenaline all of those wonderful things. If I could pick a place for anyone to listen to this record it would be getting a flight somewhere.

Are you thinking about playing the album out live whilst recording and writing?

Yeah definitely but we try and keep the two things very separate. We like to thing that making a record is like taking a photograph. It’s taking a photo of where you are at and what you’ve been coming up with of. At the moment we’re at the rehearsal studios piecing together how we want to do things live and it inevitably changes quite a lot which we really like. For us, going to see a band and they just sound like the records is not so exciting, it hasn’t got that element of danger to it.

Can you see another live album in the future?

Yes, hopefully a little bit further down the road of touring so we’re a bit more warmed up. Also we recently did an acoustic show last week which we hadn’t really done before. We do quite a bit of acoustic stuff for radio but we’d never done a show before. It was just something completely new, we had a string quartet and with us having never played with any other musicians but ourselves it was really strange but there’s definitely talk of doing something like that again on a bigger scale.

Speaking of working with other musicians, how do you feel about collaborations, is there anybody you could see yourselves working with?

We’ve never really talked about collaborating with other musicians, it’s never been put in front of us so we’ve never really thought about it but I’m sure it would be really interesting. It’s not particularly on our list of things to do. But if an offer came up then yeah sure, if Prince gives us a call then by all means…

What does the rest of 2014 hold for you?

It’s just relentless touring in front of us now. Next week we’re off to America then coming back to do some UK shows and then Europe, after that it’s back to the States and then Australia… we’ll be heading back in time to hit festival season which will be really exciting. So yeah there will be a whole lot of living out of suitcases.

Final question, what is your FAULT?

There’s no way to win this one! If I don’t say anything then it sounds like we’re just perfect… I guess we’re bad sons and daughters to our parents because we don’t see them enough as we should. Yeah we’re bad kids, we’re always gallivanting…

Angel Haze – exclusive shoot for FAULT Online

Angel Haze by Miles Holder

Bomber Jacket: D’Albert
Trousers: Jean Pierre Braganza
Boots: Dr Marten
T-Shirt: This Is A Lovesong

Last week, Angel Haze took to the stage at Heaven for her headline gig and told the assembled masses that “fans of Angel Haze are fans of themselves.” Amidst the crowd of people crying, screaming and hanging on every lyric, there is no denying that Haze has forged a rare bond with her fanbase. Sitting in the make-up chair before her FAULT shoot, she explains that “people who get me, get me because they are me in some sense….they take my music and they make it what they need.” Haze has overcome unusual adversity; she grew up in a religious cult and suffered abuse throughout her childhood, before taking on the music industry with her unique brand of raw, lyrical rap. The aggression in her music is high-impact and searing, with lyrics that possess a brutal honesty and a surprising spirituality. On stage, she has a religious quality; equal parts saint, sinner, preacher and, on the harshest tracks, appearing almost exorcised mid-set.

Trousers: Carlotta Actis Barone

Perhaps this isn’t far-off; “I wanted to use music as catharsis…to rid myself of all my demons and all the shit I couldn’t deal with alone.” Having put her life so much in the public domain, it would be easy for her ‘story’ to become a burden, and she admits that “once people relate to you, they will run to you.” Haze seems to fear being pigeon-holed, although she is resigned to the fact that “people take your demons and run with them….they become who you are.” Taking a breath, she looks around the room before asserting that “my story isn’t the only story I have to tell.” The story Haze refers to is one of “prosperity, of becoming a better person” and it’s a story ongoing. Her latest single Battle Cry features a vocal from Sia and has already broken into the Top 20, jumping 62 places in a week.

Haze is accustomed to this rapid, viral success. “I got famous from Tumblr”, she laughs between texts on her phone, “and I’m not even as famous as I’m gonna be.” By her count, it’s taken two years to transform her life and she appears incredibly introspective (and honest) for such a rising star. When I compare her to other rappers and their declarations of status, swag and self-deification, she almost timidly confides that “the braggadocio shit doesn’t come easy to me.” Instead, her lyrics are about “being honest with myself and obsessed with love”, filtered through her honest voice and confessional verses; “there’s an immense loneliness to my life.”

Trousers: Jean Pierre Braganza

Haze seems both born for the life she is living now, but also so clearly  conscious of where she has come from and, more importantly, what she has overcome. Over the course of our time together, boxes arrive from Chanel, messages get sent over from Karl Lagerfeld (in London for a store opening,) and at one point John Newman texts her to be his date for an event that evening. Haze is that rare thing- the humble rap superstar, with something to say that is truly her own, and a sense of self grounded in her lyrics and not in her designer labels. Amidst the chaos of the set- of publicists and hair people and rails of designer clothes- she pauses and reflects on what she refers to as her ‘process of becoming’ who she is now. “You change, you evolve, and you never want to go back.”

Music, friendship, success and going global. Sound great? Yep, we agree.

Friends since elementary school, and now bringing their individual styles to the world at large, Mac Miller and Dylan Reynolds might represent completely different genres but they also share a passion for great composition and all-round musical ability.

While rappers traditionally talk a big game when it comes to representing their home town and their friends, it’s hard to think of any who come close to the level of loyalty and belief shown by Mac in Dylan. We caught up with the Pittsburgh-born duo at Mac’s house in LA (thanks again Mac, we had a blast). While Dylan posed in Mac’s private studio for our shoot, Mac shunned the limelight and insisted that Dylan be the focus of our piece.

This wasn’t a meaningless show of sentimentality. Mac clearly believes in Dylan’s talent – and it’s hard to argue about musical ability with a man who has garnered almost implausible levels of success in such a short time. Over the past couple of years, the facts speak for themselves: two studio albums full of hit songs, millions of fans, the launch of his own record label and an MTV show in his honour.

Listening to Dylan’s work, we can’t see why you’d want to disagree with Mac. Signed to Mac’s REMember Music label (a classic example of ‘putting your money where your mouth is’), Dylan brings a unique talent to the roster. His flawless (or should we say FAULTless?) voice is matched by the incredible emotion he brings to each of his songs. It really is a pleasure to hear an artist register the level of feeling that Dylan does while still hitting his notes so cleanly.

Speaking to the two artists, one thing became immediately and abundantly clear: both of them put great stock in their personal convictions. Neither have any intention of compromising their integrity for a quick fix of fame – that is most likely something else that has kept the pair so close for so long. They’ve kept their own styles while retaining a respect for other people’s – more than that, they’ve both openly embraced diverse genres and inspirations. It’s something that Dylan is only just beginning to show in his music that is available to the wider public (check out ‘Tightrope’) but it’s something that is definitely to be applauded.

Singer-songwriter Dylan Reynolds – stepping into the spotlight in 2014. Grooming by Anna Branson.

FAULT: Mac – 2013: what a year for you! T.V show, tours, mix-tapes, launching your own record label, a clothing line… What’s up next for you?

Mac: If I told you that, I’d have to kill you.

What kind of talent are looking to sign to your REMember Label?

I’m looking for people who have a genuine love for music. I’m not looking for people who want a ticket to the “Big Show”. I want people who are ready to build and learn and become great. I want artists with potential and an open mind. No specifics in genre.

How would you describe Dylan’s music and what kind of impact do you see him having on the industry?

Dylan is honest. In a world where young people are manipulated and turned into consumers. Dylan is the truth. He is a young man with a story to tell. He has a passion for the art and he just wants to inspire people. He is not trying to turn his fans into consumers and become a product. His goals are far higher.

FAULT: Dylan, can you tell us more about your musical background? How long have you been writing and recording, and who/what have been the biggest influences on your sound?

Dylan: I started playing guitar and writing when as a teenager after my family moved out to a pretty isolated house in the country. So it was really out of boredom at the time, although it quickly morphed into something very different. Early on I started as a drummer.

You’ve been working on your EP – did you have an overall theme in mind for the tracks? What were some of the influences behind the singles? We’re especially curious about ‘Spanish Civil War’…

There is a definite theme to this album. It starts with a track called ‘Lifeline’ (the title track), which is about a time in a relationship when I realized I wasn’t going to die if it ended. So it’s essentially about a toxic co-dependent relationship in its final stage. The album kind of follows this trend and documents different stages of multiple relationships in different surrealistic settings.

Did you ever think in a million years, when you were growing up in Pittsburgh, that you’d ever being making music, working and touring together with Mac?

I think I always had a feeling that we were both going to be involved with music pretty early on, but I had no idea that it was going to turn into what it is. Working this closely with one of your best friends is pretty special.

I’ve just finished my debut EP and I have a video for my single ”Young and Set” that will be coming out soon as well. I don’t know whats going to happen in 2014 but think its gonna be a big year for me in some way.
