Once described as “super nice guys”, Faintheart is an indie rock band from Kansas City, Missouri.
Formed in 2016, and never living in the same city, Faintheart has released two EPs that have culminated into an emotive and introspective sound. Sharing the stage with artists such as Knox Hamilton, The Moth & The Flame, Vinyl Theatre and Slaughter Beach, Dog the band has created an inviting and accessible sound.
With the success of their first self titled EP, the band’s lead single ‘You And I’ made its way onto official Spotify playlists, Substream Magazine (issue 56), and radio stations across the country. Releasing their second EP, “The Overview Effect”, the boys wrote the entire album over Google Drive and Skype, and launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds for it’s recording and production. The album, a culmination of songs inspired by struggles with mental health and observations of an increasingly frustrating political climate was released in March of 2018.
With the release of their new self recorded and self mixed single ‘Us’, the band is beginning to gear up for the recording of their first full length record.
