The Aussies with a love for 80’s new wave are back. FAIRCHILD return with a new neon-blaring gem that is set to excite the long summer night’s that await us. The track is ‘Neighbourhoods’, and it teases to a mind that is beseeched with lust for one that should probably be left alone. But like most things in life, sometimes we don’t always know what’s best for us in the moment, it’s only upon reflection that we take heed.
Singer, Adam Lyons speaks more about the lyrical meaning, revealing that: “Neighbourhoods is a song about a stripper, but really it’s a story about lusting after something you shouldn’t. The narrative follows a character – maybe it’s me – in his pursuit of this woman. There’s no mistaking these lyrics, there’s nothing poetic happening here as such. The song is a warning: be careful what you fall for.”
Slinky cut guitars match the sleekness of a groovy bass line, while thick and driving rhythms meet dancefloor-ready synths to form a statement of intent that is impossible to ignore – this band want to make us move. So unleash your inner radical and dance away those questionable thoughts, like they would in any good 80’s-era movie, we’re thinking Footloose or maybe Flashdance, either would do the trick.
