Lukas Mayo Such a good sounding record. Heaps of instruments are involved in this record, but all is used sparingly. The harps and glockenspiels come in and out and dance around the melodies, the guitar is beautifully recorded, and the builds and arrangements of songs like Nocturne and Kitsune are mosh-worthy. Favorite track: Great Escape.

Nathan Stanley A great folky music offering with great acoustic-style percussion and heartfelt lyrics. A nice mix of upbeat and quieter tracks. This album by Farah Loux has a lovely cinematic quality and is well worth a listen! Favorite track: K.I.D.S..

about

We present to you: FARAH LOUX's debut album "FLAWS".
"Flaws", a work of love - crafted and recorded over the past two years, is Farah Loux's first full length release. They are overcome with excitement to finally be able to share this special release with the public. For the first two weeks of the release, "Flaws" will be set as 'pay what you want' - we only ask in return that you share "Flaws" with as many as your friends as possible!

It's not often you find a band that includes all sections of a classical orchestra, but New Zealand alt-folk band FARAH LOUX (formerly known as Alaska)
have it covered with just six members. Using a range of unconventional instruments (including harp and peruvian clarinet) they write and execute unique
arrangements that add honesty to their songs and emotional clarity to their lyrics. With influence ranging from Arcade Fire and Radiohead to Chopin,
the creative sound that FARAH LOUX brings is "atmospherically gorgeous and utterly sincere" (Metro Magazine).

Formed in 2009 under the name Alaska, Farah Loux have been playing around New Zealand working on their craft and enjoying the music they make.
They are looking forward to releasing their debut LP FLAWS in 2012.
