Seattle punks Pastel Faces have burst onto the scene with their dynamic new EP. Blossom is a heady arrangement of math rock guitars, boisterous hardcore, and big, pop-punk inspired choruses, with the young quartet delivering five tracks of engaging modern alternative.
1. Silver Lining
2. Sakura Bloom
4. No Requiem
5. Heaven Sword
Hitting the sweet spot between melodic hardcore and pop-punk, Pastel Faces land blows with Jonno Ruiz's potent lead vocal, charming listeners with dazzling, hooky choruses. The band brandish a decidedly technical sword, whilst making room for heartfelt storytelling.
Since the release of debut single, "Dead Weight" in 2021, the Seattle four-piece have been diligently building their fan base across the West Coast.
Bearing origin from a city that defines original and progressive guitar-led music, Pastel Faces defy pigeon-holing. The band's upcoming five-track EP, Blossom sees a collision of resonating riffs and rousing hooks. Produced by the band's own Dillon Patrick, the intricate juxtaposition of influences exudes emotion, energy and a palpable atmosphere, with Pastel Faces' dexterity and candour in full flow on the intimate new collection.
