NEWS: Fiona Bevan releases new single Faultlines

Fiona Bevan, the Canadian-British songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist from Suffolk, England has just announced the release of her new single ‘Faultlines’. It is the first solo single to be taken from her forthcoming self-produced EP, Girl With Telescope.

Speaking about ‘Faultlines’, Fiona Bevan says: “I really wanted the melody of this to almost sound like an achy country ballad. It was important to me when I was making my forthcoming Girl With Telescope EP, that I used not only organic instruments like guitar/piano/vocals/violin/bells but also analogue synth sounds added into the mix, and then I messed with it in a playful, free, collage-y way during the production process.

The lyrics came to me after some deep searching – ‘my side of the story/ and that version you told me/ separate slowly/ chasms in between.’ This was the hardest lyric to write, as I had to understand what gaslighting was, and accept that I had been through it, and acknowledge and celebrate that I was coming out the other side of it… Sometimes lyrics are difficult, but they have to come out. I know from chatting to strangers after gigs, and from messages all across the world, that people are helped and healed by hearing truthful lyrics and I now know that part of my purpose is truth and healing, for me and for every single person who listens and connects because songs join us together.

The track ends with a very delicate, peaceful, light touch after an orgasmic swell/explosion on the Juno synth – this is me trying to ‘write the female’ – I wanted to know how it would sound if I could paint a female orgasm with sound, and it’s also like a constellation exploding as this Girl With Telescope EP looks up to the stars for answers, escape, solace, beauty.”

International Women’s Day will be held on 8th March 2022 and Fiona Bevan has also announced that she will be headlining an International Women’s Day Special show – Live In The Chapel at House Of St Barnabas, London – on the following evening on Wednesday 9th March. Tickets are available here.
