Today we're really pleased to be adding yet another music video from another local talented band, Fainities. The song featured in the video is called, "Geraldine" and will be shown within the Big Screen music programme slots which plays daily between 10am - 11am as well as 4pm - 5pm.
Formed in 2016, Fainities have wasted no time establishing themselves on the fertile South Coast rock scene. Their debut gig in October was at the legendary Joiners in Southampton, where they were invited to support rising rockers Blackfoxxes. A sold-out December hometown show in Portsmouth followed, and their 2017 started with a bang with a stellar performance at Icebreaker festival in February.
The band create anthemic, intelligent, hardcore-tinged alternative rock, and their debut EP ‘Battle Scars’ was released on Monday 17th April. Lead track ‘Geraldine’ - a storming piece of alternative rock, welding chunky guitar riffs to yearning vocals and pounding drums - is set for radio and press exposure, with a video to accompany.
“Geraldine was inspired by the true story of Geraldine Largay, a woman who went missing in 2013 whilst on an Appalachian trail,” says frontman Chris Perrin. “She’d gotten lost and managed to survive 26 days alone in the wild before dying in her tent, surrounded by goodbye letters she had written for her loved ones. Her body wasn't found for over 2 years. I don't usually write songs from the perspective of other people’s lives, but Geraldine's story really hit me. It’s not a stereotypical subject for a rock song, but I'd like to think the energy and melody is a fitting tribute to a woman who obviously had a real zest for life."
