In these dying days, as a brutal 2016 drags itself to a welcome end, guitars can seem rarer than hope.
RedFaces are rarer still – a brand new guitar band snapped up by a major label in open defiance of chart stats and marketing departments.
Newly signed to RCA and with a debut single – the incendiary ‘Kerosene’ – due on February 3, 2017, RedFaces are Harry Lyon, Isaac White, Charlie Yapp and Ryan Laycock. Four lads from Sheffield treading what was once a well-worn path, these days the road less travelled.
The journey started at 2Fly studios in Sheffield, recording demos with Alan Smyth, the man behind the Arctic Monkey’s first ventures.
