The Fae are a new Dublin alt-rock band who started playing gigs last year including the recent Whelan’s Ones To Watch gig in January.

With a love of indie, power pop, shoegaze and alternative rock, and a desire to bring “big chorus guitar music” to the fore, the three-piece made an impression on me with a very well-designed gig invite poster for starts.

Now, Chloe Corcoran Hanlon (Drums / Vocals), Jordan Crawford (Guitar / Vocals) and Emma Hempton (Bass / Vocals) are releasing their debut single.

‘Chloe’ is a song informed by classic retro-rock styles and with a melodic edge, a vibrant first step into the music scene.

Watch the video for the song now directed, shot, edited and produced by Niamh Barry, ahead of its release on March 16th along with a B-side Super-Tramp’. It features on The Fae’s debut EP Bloodrush, due September 2023.

”Chloe” is one of those songs that came together super quick, half as a joke and half as something to help a friend who had just split from her girlfriend. 

I wanted to give some comfort to her and sort of say ”Hey, it’s alright, you know better”. 

The audio clip at the start is her talking about the break up to another one of our friends, which we ended up recording by mistake while making a demo. Happy accident.
