Aussie sixtet Fairchild today release their new single High As A Kite from their forthcoming debut album So Long And Thank You. The new single follows on from and So Long And Thank You, the album’s title track, and is full of synths, hooks and a guitar laden crescendo. Listen below.
While the title may suggest a goodbye, the song and album mark a huge step for the band who recently returned from a two-year stay in Manchester, UK, where they focused on performing, touring and finishing their record. The album will be released on August 4th via the band’s own label, Canvas Sounds.
So Long and Thank You was produced and mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice) and is a collection of tracks that traces Fairchild’s experiences from Australia to the UK, and back again.
I first wrote High As A Kite on piano and it sounded quite sweet. But by the time we were in the studio, the track had morphed into this sort of passive aggressive anthem… It’s the sort of anger you swallow every time you have to bite your tongue and think something instead of saying it. The anger you hold back.
So Long and Thank You will be released on August 4th via their own label, Canvas Sounds.
