Piers Faccini: “Tribe”

Piers Faccini was born in the UK, raised in France, and made his name in London as part of the English music scene in the early 2000’s. Faccini earned himself a recording contract in America with his unique brand of strummed guitar-folk music. In his more subdued vocal moments, Faccini sounds like Andrew Bird to me, particularly on “Tribe,” the single we’re offering here. But his voice is a bit grittier, less polished than Bird’s, in a really alluring way.  There’s some really interesting guitar work here by Faccini, who released his most recent LP My Wilderness last month on Six Degrees Records. That’s an apt title for the record, because “Tribe” sounds as though it could be the soundtrack to some face-painted, dance-around-the-bonfire party somewhere deep in the steamy wilderness. The sing-along background vocals only add to that sort of communal groove feeling. Stream “Tribe” below.

      Thanks for the heads-up, Karine, must have misread the bio we were given. Thanks so much for reading and listening!
