The Faim at The Exchange | Bristol
The Faim came into existence as naturally as their music. The Australian group met while in high school in Perth, emerging from an assignment completed in their music class. Soon the friends were penning their own songs, inspired by bands like Fall Out Boy, Panic at the Disco and Metallica, and each brought in an array of musical influences, from indie rock to jazz to pop-punk. Since the beginning, the idea has always been to keep things as organic and sincere as possible, always ensuring that each song The Faim makes reflects who they are human beings.
The band, originally called Small Town Heroes, played their first show at Stephen’s 18th birthday party and then began searching out local venues around Perth. They regularly handed out flyers and posters outside Perth Arena and recorded 30-second covers of favorite tracks to post online. The hustle and creativity was important in the isolated community’s small music scene and the four musicians were dedicated and willing to sacrifice everything to follow this dream. “Making a name for yourself in Perth is 100 times harder,” Josh notes. “That gave us this work ethic to try and really push ourselves. Every little effort added up. We’ve also been lucky, but I think because we work so hard we’ve created our own luck in many ways.”
In the summer of 2016 the band, who had renamed themselves The Faim (French for “the hunger”), noticed that producer John Feldmann had posted a call on Instagram for unsigned bands with touring experience. Although The Faim had no touring experience, they messaged him anyway, sending a long missive about their deep dedication to music. The producer wrote back a few weeks later and everything instantly went from zero to a hundred. The band began writing new songs and ended up with 30 half-written ideas to bring to the studio in Los Angeles in the spring of 2017. There they wrote and recorded two songs per day, pushing the limits of genres and expectation, and enlisted the help of several co-writers, including Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Mark Hoppus (Blink 182), Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots) and Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds of Summer).
