The Faps Live @FernandosPub
Date:Thu, Apr 26th, 2018
Blair Colwell and Skyler Cafferata have been creating music together for years, developing a sound that is both broad and focused.
Between the two of them, artistic influences are vast, but collide amongst Nick Cave, Modest Mouse, and Daughters. Their brand of fast, heavy music is rooted in post-punk and indie rock, but flirts with hardcore, blues, jazz, psych, and pop. Often built on quick danceable rhythms and catchy guitar lines, their songs showcase an affinity for experimenting with structure – timings, key changes, or total mood shifts. While this may paint a messy and absurd picture, the vicious guitar-and-drum vessel of The Faps keeps an intriguing sense of familiarity, no matter how wild and erratic the sound becomes. This concept of contrast is a common element in their musical endeavours, always maintaining a balance; beauty versus hideousness, harmony versus dissonance, steadfast yet loose.
Having toured Canada extensively since their inception in July 2012, The Faps are at home on the road and on the stage. Their unconventional punk rock performance has been captivating audiences in clubs, pubs, halls, basements, and even back alleys. As if their raw, high energy sound wasn’t engaging enough, the crowds can’t help but love their honest, witty stage presence – both Cafferata and Colwell truly value connecting on a personal level with fans and have no trouble making everyone in the room feel warm, welcome, and excited.
