Everybody knows The Flaws. They exploded onto the Irish music scene in late 2007 when theirdebut long player ‘Achieving Vagueness’ was released to universal critical acclaim. It entered the Irish Top 20 and lead to both Choice and Meteor nominations. Having toured the debut for over 18 months solid playing some amazing shows across the country including memorable sets at Glastonbury, Electric Picnic ’08 and Oxegen the band took a well deserved break.
In October 2010 the band released their new album ‘Constant Adventure’. This much anticipated second album was recorded at Tumbleweed Studios in Dundalk, was self produced and mixed and engineered by Jason Varley. The end result showcased just how much The Flaws have grown as a band, track after track boasts beautiful harmonies and dazzles with glittering guitars.
With the departure of original bass player Dane McMahon in early 2012 the band were compelled to look themselves squarely in the eye. They did what they have always done best. They sat down and wrote some dazzling new songs. The first fruit of that process is Million Miles which is released on iTunes on May 25th. All the hallmarks of the band’s sound are there, the soaring harmonies, Colin Berrill’s relentless drum attack and the sumptuous melodic interplay between Paul Finn and Shane Malone’s guitars. With more fantastic songs in their arsenal 2012 promises to mark the return of The Flaws.
The Flaws launch ‘Million Miles’ with a show in the Spirit Store on Friday 25th May and play . There’s a link below where you can download a copy of the single. If you would prefer a CD copy please get in touch.
