Northern Faces

An impressive display of sonic prowess from an Albany, NY-based indie rock trio
Wait until the cops come, you'll never make us break right in front of everyone.
lyrics from Cops Come

Offering impossibly catchy hooks and melodies, unparalleled harmonies, blues-influenced instrumentation and a modern pop sensibility, Northern Faces has crafted an impressive standout sound that is all their own. The Albany, NY-based indie-rock outfit showcases their sonic prowess on their self-titled, debut full-length, out now on Equal Vision Records.

Lead single “Wait, Wait, Wait” has quickly earned the band new fans and widespread attention around the world, receiving radio support from the likes of WEQX, WRFF, WFUZ, WHSN, RadioBDC, WLZX, WEMF and more, with new stations continuously adding the song into rotation. Northern Faces has also received over 2.5 million plays on Spotify and has been featured on the Alternative Top 100, Hot Alternative, Rainy Day and New Music Tuesday Official Spotify playlists.

Northern Faces was recorded at The Barber Shop Studios in Lake Hopatcong, NJ, with producer Casey Bates (Portugal. The Man, Gatsby’s American Dream, Fear Before); And is the follow up to the band’s debut EP, Southern Places, which was released in March 2013.

Northern Faces' debut show was an opening slot for The Kooks and Royal Teeth in early 2012. The band has since toured and shared stages with the diverse likes of The 1975, Kongos, Cage The Elephant, Say Anything, RX Bandits, Electric Guest, Civil Twilight, Futurebirds, and Heartless Bastards, and has performed at SXSW and CMJ Festivals.
