FACS, like many of the greats, are a bit of an anomaly. Occupying a space between Can, This Heat, Don Caballero, Radiohead with vague goth influences like Bauhaus and more, the former members of Disappears — Brian Case and Noah Leger plus Cat Power and We Ragazzi's Alianna Kalaba — have carved out a world all their own, and it's a fascinating one: a twisted, paranoid, urgent noir universe where Blade Runner is recognized for the cinematic genius that it is and the world is filled with hyper-intelligent cynics who have seen it all before and can't wait for the world to implode with a mild "poof." It's dark stuff, but insanely literate and interesting — bearing fruit upon each repeat listening.
The band's latest release is the video for "In Time," culled from their forthcoming sophomore effort Lifelike, due via Trouble In Mind Records on March 29, 2019 (pre-order here). Occupying a similarly dark, beautiful and noir landscape as their music, the video for "In Time" fits the banger track perfectly. Check it out above, and don't miss them on the road.
