Candid Faces - Coming Home

Highly infectious perky quirky post-punkRock Radio

Following the success of their previous single, the infectious Needle Talk, which enjoyed radio support from BBC Introducing, Punky Radio, Total Rock Radio and many others, Hull based post punk band Candid Faces are back with their latest single Coming Home – a raw and vibrant slice of post-punk that lyrically touches on abusive parental relationships, themes of bigotry and dealing with such issues as a young person.

Keeping a lo-fi feel to the record, Coming Home was produced at Hull University’s in-house studio by fellow musician Tom Foston from fellow up and coming Hull based band The Avenues. An incessant post-punk guitar hook starts things off before punchy drums kick in and lead to seemingly witty lyrics from the spirited vocals of Liz Shaw about an imaginary anti-social bloke – but these soon develop into an uneasy diatribe about one individual known by the band. Liz explains: “It may seem like a fun jokey track that pokes fun at bigots and abusers but for our guitarist it was a healing process and a way for them to write about difficult experiences from their childhood, even if it was just an ambiguous four lines”.
