29 Jul Funk It! Flawes Release New Single “Blank Dice”; Listen Now!
Flawes released their new single “Blank Dice” and I am digging it! For some reason it reminds me of “Shattered Dreams” by Johnny Hates Jazz from the 80’s.
The new EP is the band’s first new material since 2016’s ‘CTRL’ and ‘UNSPKN’ EPs created a feverish buzz around the trio. ‘Blank Dice’ – produced by young, London producer Lostboy (Ella Eyre / Anne-Marie) encapsulates the band’s flair for alternative pop which has been attracting a loyal fan base these past 12 months.
“The song is based on the concept of luck” commented front man Josh (JC) Carruthers. “… with the idea that you ‘make your own luck’ and ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’. A dice is the worldwide symbol for luck. When you strip a dice of all it’s numbers and roll it, nothing will happen because you make your own chances in life.”
“It outlines the sacrifices and strains on life when working hard in a cutthroat industry so hugely competitive. It’s not a lifestyle built for everyone and some people don’t understand or agree with investing/gambling away a huge amount of time, effort and focus”.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The band’s new material highlights an exciting first half of 2017 for FLAWES who have already performed at a host of festivals including Live at Leeds, The Great Escape Festival, and were also hand-picked to perform on the Introducing stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull earlier this Summer.
