Premiere: Faultress – ‘Illusions’

Following 2019’s spellbinding EP 5 Myths, innovative London-based artist Faultress (an extinct word for a female criminal) has now announced her debut album, set for release later this year.

Taken from the album, new single ‘Illusions’ offers a twinkling ethereal soundscape. Flowing with the sweeping crystalline splendour of the vocals, it builds in power with majestic layers of musicality to a shimmering alt-pop ballad. Juxtaposing a compelling, soaring emotion with delicate lilting keys, Faultress offers an impassioned, stirring reflection on life’s uncertainties. A truly exquisite, cinematic sonic fusion. Of the meaning behind ‘Illusions’, Faultress explains:

This is a song about existential angst and uncontrollable anxiety. The constant and incredibly frustrating battle with my emotions that seem so real but so arbitrary too and the double worry my relationships will tire and disappear as a result of them all…

Produced by Joshua Davenport (Peaky Blinders soundtrack) and mixed by Dom Howard, ‘Illusions’ is out tomorrow, 23rd April. It is taken from Faultress’ upcoming debut album, Nocturnes, set for release on 30th September via London-based label Folklore.
