The best kept secret in music


"March 4th 2005 - Faces on Film"

"At first, Faces on Film give the impression of mining a similar vein to The Bon Savants, if not quite as successfully. The singer's voice is nicely textured and weathered-sounding, but the tunes themselves have a meandering quality that I find hard to take in. (I get the clear impression that I might enjoy them more on subsequent hearings.) But the second song adds a sort of dance beat and a really interesting high, screaming vocal that sounds very different. And the third song is a quieter, more contemplative and gentle thing, pretty and spare. As the set goes on, they add interesting odd-time rhythms in some songs (the rhythm section plays fairly simple parts, but they play them with the same straightforward skill whether they're basic 4/4 dance beats or alternating eights and sevens), some interesting synth noises for one song, and a lovely, clear falsetto. I like a really deep bag of tricks, and this band just keeps surprising me. By the end of the set, I am their fan." (Steve Gisselbrecht) - The Noise


Self released EP, recorded in 2004, available at live shows


Feeling a bit camera shy


Faces on Film is an incarnation of progressive rock music based in Boston, Massachusetts. On the strength of a six-song demo recorded in July of 2004, the band has been headlining at marquee venues throughout the northeast during the winter and early spring, such as Piano’s, The Middle East, TT the Bears, The Mercury Lounge among many others.

Faces on Film is a purveyor of a melodic, exploratory brand of pop that is both accessible and challenging; both bold and beautiful. Vocals by Mike Fiore ranging dramatically from the ethereal to edgy, add to the complexities of each song. Ted Gallagher and Mike layer interweaving guitar melodies over the driving rhythms of percussionist Peter Schaefer. As the songs progress the melodic tendrils of Dave Hinckley bass delicately magnify the power of both the melody and the percussion. Their enigmatic sound is quickly making them a young, fresh voice on the East Coast music scene. They will begin work on a new EP in April of 2005 at Q-Division studio in Somerville, MA with the assistance of master engineer and producer Nick Zampiello. This record is slated for an independent release in the Untied States in the late summer, to be couple with a pre-released single in Europe and Japan. A full length record should be distributed internationally in late fall.
