Words: Saam Das
'Devil', the glorious opening salvo from London trio FACE emerged earlier this month. There's been surprisingly little coverage of the track thus far, considering just how impressive it is. Dare I compare the anthemic 'Devil' to Embrace's 'Ashes'? I dare. (I still think that is a genuinely top notch song.) Check out the new track below, along with their cover of Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt'.
Speaking of ashes, FACE are the new incarnation of synth-heavy VYKTORIA and (judging from their YouTube and Soundcloud pages) look set to incorporate some of their older songs in their new setup. It is however their latest track 'Devil' that particularly captures the imagination, rumbling along with a quiet sense of euphoria. An exciting start to this new project.
FACE play their debut London gig on Thursday at The Black Heart. Find more info at facebook.com/facetheuniverse.
