Faitala Short Info

"A band tipped for the top from Manchester"
- Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music / BBC Introducing)

"You’ll find Faitala delivering their sickly sweet pop in simply brilliant fashion. It’s the type of music that can take 10 years off you, reminiscent of a time when The Temper Trap, Yeasayer and Miike Snow dominated our airwaves."
- Getintothis

Manchester-based three-piece FAITALA are set to release their debut EP on Tiny Records, November 28th.

Formed in 2013, 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 show after he saw the band play locally at one of their early live shows.

The infectious pop of the soon 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.

Their recent debut single release "Beasts" came backed by a great remix by Dutch Uncles and has received support from:
- Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1 / BBC Introducing),
- Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music / BBC Introducing),
- Michelle Hussey (BBC Introducing Manchester),
- Shell Zenner (Amazing Radio).
To fund the physical release of their debut single, the band created a campaign on PledgeMusic. In less than 48 hours the campaign was fully funded, resulting in them reaching 185% of their target in less than 2 weeks.
