Faulkner have released another song off of their much anticipated REVANCHIST EP, this time in the form of a dark, retributive pop song entitled “Waters Are A Rising”.
The Los Angeles-based band was sought out by such prominent producers as Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons), J.P. Bowersock (Julian Casablancas, Ryan Adams) and RZA (Wu-Tang Clan, Earl Sweatshirt), who the latter brought the band to record at Rick Rubin’s Shangri La studio in Malibu, CA. It was here that RZA and FAULKNER collaborated on their genre bending, pop hit “NY Anthem” in Bob Dylan’s parked tour bus of all places.
With a title translating to “someone who advocates revenge” in French, the EP is an epic collage of interconnected concepts addressing retribution, hustling, and dislocated youth (inspired by frontman Lucas Asher’s time spent as an orphaned teenager on the streets of Brooklyn). Asher also keeps a copy of the book 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene under his pillow, which perennially affects his Machiavellian lyrics. By creating a themed collection of sonically varied singles with layered messages, FAULKNER has proven themselves as true auteurs who go above and beyond for the sake of sustainable art.
