Flawes ~ Don’t Wait For Me

FLAWES ~ Don't Wait For Me Artwork!

Who is FLAWES?   A brand new alt-pop trio from LONDON.  They are Josh Carruthers (Vocals/Keys),  Freddie Edwards (Guitar) and Josh Hussey (Drums)!

My first impression of “Don’t Wait For Me” : A raw and emotional track evoking a wide range of heart tugging thoughts and feelings around ending something even though you might not completely want to!

My take :  Life has a crazy way of both happily bringing people together and painfully pulling others apart.  When I listen to “Don’t Wait For Me”, I am carried into a tough moment more on the side of the latter, where the definitive words of letting go meets unfortunate reality.  Buoyed by incredibly heartfelt vocals delivering worn down sounding lyrics, “Don’t Wait For Me” beautifully blends this somberly powerful voice with a deeply melodic backdrop of gentle guitars and melancholic electronics without pushing too hard.  As the song unfolds, I begin to feel the weight of the intensity behind having to make such a difficult decision become heavier and more personal. Sensing an underlying feeling of hope that something might change to make things better but knowing deep down nothing will ever be the same again.  Amazing debut and fantastic accompanying video too!

FLAWES is a new 3-piece band to definitely keep an eye on and I look forward to checking out their upcoming “Unspkn” EP duo out later this month.  It sounds like it will be a great one!

TMH RATING: 8.5/10 Amazing!

I now reside in Savoy IL and I try to make it up to the Chicago music scene as much as I can. Music has always been a part of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way!
