London-native FAYYE is a rising alt-pop artist with an introspective soul. Reminiscent of Freya Ridings, London Grammar and Birdy, FAYYE’s cinematic, bewitching sound and poetic lyricism provide an atmospheric backdrop to her themes on the human experience, tapping into current emotional topics such as self-confidence, taking chances and letting go.
Following the release of her first EP, She, in 2020, FAYYE releases her new single, ‘Places’, today. Written and produced in collaboration with Ian Barter (Izzy Bizu, Paloma Faith), the song takes inspiration from the final scene in 90s cult film, Thelma and Louise. Over laid-back, nostalgic melodies, FAYYE tells the story of two people driving away from their hometown, leaving it in the rearview as they venture towards something new – summer wind in their hair.
Swiftly following ‘Blind Faith’ in May 2022, ‘Places’ is the second single to be released in the run-up to FAYYE’s upcoming EP, Rise, due to come out towards the end of the year.
