“Phoebe, Sophie and I all play in other bands, but we run in the same circles,” explains guitarist Kathryn Woods—who also plays in punk quartet Fresh—of the bands inception. “Phoebe and I have toured together as Happy Accidents and Fresh, and Sophie is in a band called Finish Flag too, but we played in a band together briefly that was called Don’t Die (Dean from Doe’s project). Because we’re all the only women in our main bands, we decided to make a band that explores being women together.
All our writing has been collaborative and quite spontaneous, and because we’re friends first and foremost, it all feels very natural and easy. We just want to have fun—that’s why we’re doing it! Our songs are vulnerable, sometimes quiet and sometimes loud. We’re writing and making music together without any expectations and it feels very freeing.”
faceplant was recorded and produced by Rich Mandell, who also plays guitar and sings alongsinde Phoebe in Happy Accidents, and mastered by Ryan Schwabe (Hop Along, Kississippi, Cayetana and more).
