Track: London Indie-Folk 5-Piece The Long Faces Share Vibrant New Single ‘Eisenhower’

Capturing a post-punk attitude and a bright, feverish approach to making music on their new single ‘Eisenhower’, The Long Faces showcase a more organic acoustic approach to their strikingly unique sound.

Pulling gently away from the full band alt-indie sound of their previous releases and settling on a bed of acoustic guitars, bright violin, bouncing piano, boxy bass and understated drums, ‘the band, capture an essence of ‘Eisenhower’ embodies the spirit of 70s folk rock whilst retaining the freshness, experimentation and wit of Black Country New Road and Guillemots. Led by a theatrical, guttural and urgent lead vocal, the track is given a driving sense of direction and a poetic edge emphasising the intensity and energy present in the musical backdrop.

Speaking about the track, the band has this to say: “‘Eisenhower’ is the right song at the right time for us as a band. We’re at a moment in our development where sonically, things are moving in a decidedly new direction, which we’re very excited about, whilst at the same time, we’re reflecting on how we got here: our coming of age both as a group, and as individuals. The song itself is a kind of meditation on all of these feelings. It’s about conflicting impulses, about the tension between nostalgic and progressive desires, and the possibilities that arise from confronting both at once.”
