Faux Pas

6:45pm - 7:15pm (Saturday)


Faux Pas will claw their way into your every waking thought and make you beg for more. Taking influence from the Riot Grrrl movement; along with bands like Placebo, they have brought their own twisted brand of Indie Punk to Reading and Leeds, Kendal Calling and BBC Radio 1. Championed by BBC Introducing, it’s no surprise they’re gaining a reputation for their explosive live performances, mixing grunge gloom with lo-fi, punk anthems of protest. Off the back of supporting bands such as; The Blinders, Hands Off Gretel and Embrace, the band embarked on their third UK headline tour, promoting their latest single ‘TV Made Me Paranoid’. Exploring the myth of fame, the Manchester-based quartet will bring back punk and empower the disenfranchised.

“Manchester trio Faux Pas can take care of themselves. A resolutely DIY experience, the band stand apart from the hyper-capitalist day-to-day experience of life in 2k19.”

"Their EP is absolutely magnificent"
