Flying High with Faerie: Christine Lam Soares in the Indie Music Scene
Get ready to immerse yourself in the ethereal world of Faerie, the New York-born artist who has just released her latest EP, “dizzy spells”.
This marks Faerie’s first EP since 2021’s “2am,” and features two never-before-heard tracks that are sure to take your breath away. Faerie’s music has already captured the attention of Spotify, earning her a coveted spot on their Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Indie playlists.
Drawing inspiration from the artists of her teenage, 2010s “Tumblr era” such as Arctic Monkeys, Tame Impala, and HAIM, “dizzy spells” encapsulates years of young love, growth, and maturation in just five captivating tracks. Faerie explains, “The past was catching up to me, and all I could do was reflect. This EP gave me a chance to really experiment with my sound and dig into stories I’ve kept hidden in the back of my mind.”
Working alongside producer Matty Bedrosian, Faerie infused her love for pop with folk and psychedelic influences to create an EP that is both dreamy and introspective. Faerie’s lyrics are raw and emotional, transporting listeners on a journey through her reflections and overwhelming emotions. Her tracks build to a crescendo before fading out, leaving you wanting more.
The EP’s first track, “virgo sun,” is a hypnotic melody that oscillates between questioning and stream-of-consciousness answers. It’s a hauntingly beautiful track that harkens back to mid-2010s songs like Lorde’s “Ribs” and COIN’s “Lately.” Meanwhile, “champagne tears,” the final track on the EP, has already garnered digital and print coverage, marking Faerie’s first print publication feature since she burst onto the scene in 2020.
Since the release of her first single, “k-town,” in October 2022, “dizzy spells” has amassed over 21,000 streams, a testament to Faerie’s growing fanbase. Her recent sold-out EP release show, in collaboration with Sari Sari Co., showcased Faerie’s unique sound in an intimate setting at the Visionary Art Gallery in NJ.
Overall, “dizzy spells” is a mesmerizing collection of tracks that showcases Faerie’s undeniable talent and solidifies her place as one of the most promising up-and-coming artists in the industry. So, sit back, relax, and let Faerie’s music take you on a magical journey through her world.
