Listen To Former Faces Debut Track "The Runaround"
LA indie rock band FORMER FACES – the new project from musician & producer Ryan Parmenter – has released its debut single “the Runaround.” Former Faces is a study in dreams and memories crossing paths. The Silverlake-based outfit creates fluid cerebral sounds reminiscent of Tame Impala, The War On Drugs, Jim James, and Deerhunter, to name a few. After putting the finishing touches on his self-written and self-produced work, Parmenter enlisted the help of David Lee (guitar), Brian Blake (bass), and Abraham Kim (drums) to shape his live act, which aims to bring a complete audiovisual performance to the stage. Organically exploring the relationship between reality and the subconscious, the result is a collection of sonic dreamscapes that shrink and blur the line between the two. From airy indie-style tracks to songs born from more psychedelic roots, the Former Faces sound takes inspiration from a wide range of genres that have informed Parmenter’s years of songwriting experience.
"It's been nearly 2 years since I began conceptualizing Former Faces,” explains Parmenter. “I'm very excited to finally see the project come to life.”
