FLAWES have lifted the lid on their new single Blank Dice from their upcoming EP, that will be released in the autumn via Red Bull Records.
The EP will be the group’s first since CTRL and UNSPKN, which dropped in 2016. Blank Dice was produced by Lostboy, who has previously worked with Ella Eyre and Anne-Marie.
Talking about the tune, front man Josh Currthers said: “The song is based on the concept of luck, with the idea that you ‘make your own luck’ and ‘the harder you work, the luckier you get’. A dice is the worldwide symbol for luck.
“When you strip a dice of all it’s numbers and roll it, nothing will happen because you make your own chances in life.It outlines the sacrifices and strains on life when working hard in a cutthroat industry so hugely competitive.
“It’s not a lifestyle built for everyone and some people don’t understand or agree with investing/gambling away a huge amount of time, effort and focus”.
The new songs preceed an eventful 2017 for the band, who have already performed at festivals like Live at Leeds and The Great Escape – while also making new fans thanks to a set at Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Hull.
Their career took off after they released their debut song Don’t Wait For Me, which ended up at number eight on the Spotify UK Viral Chart and was playlisted by BBC Introducing and Radio 1.
The band have since spent the last six months writing and recording between LA and London, with Blank Dice being the second track from the studio sessions to showcase material from the next EP.
