Ohio Indie-Rocker FAYE is back with her new single ‘As I Am’. The follow up to the indie anthem ‘Pink Dress’, ‘As I Am’ gives an insight into the rockier side of FAYE’s repertoire, offering up a pop-punk influenced number with heaps of energy and angst. Using her music as a source of recovery from her personal trauma, FAYE hopes that her music and story will inspire others and help them to cope with their personal struggles.
Bringing together crunchy guitar tones, driving drums and subtle bass under FAYE’s stylistic breathy vocals, ‘As I Am’ perfectly balances between out and out rock with indie-pop by retaining catchy vocal lines and relatable lyrics over it’s distorted instrumentation.
Speaking on the new single ‘FAYE’ said: “As I Am is a song about being an outsider and how it’s more fulfilling to be your authentic self than be fake just to gain validation from others.”
