Fauves is a Glasgow based band which was formed in 2017 by Ryan Caldwell, when he began recording some demos with the help of Ciaran Devlin on drums. Fauves made their live debut in March 2017 headlining a sold out King Tuts in Glasgow with their current full live line up, consisting of Ryan Caldwell, Ciaran Devlin, Jonny Glass, Rory Bradley and Gianluca Bernacchi. The band are recognisable for their unique sound and artworks, taking their name and influence from Fauvism, an early 20th Century French art movement which utilised vibrant colours and shapes. Since their early formation they have collaborated with visual artists Sarah Alexander and Eric Liddle in developing all of their artworks and music videos, respectively.
Their first two single releases, 'Hit Like This' and 'Afterglow' received support from The Skinny and Dork Magazines respectively. Their debut EP, 'Les Fauves', was released in January 2018, and featured 'Head Spins', which has since became the bands most recognisable song, receiving track of the week on BBC Scotland as well as featuring on several Spotify playlists. Their latest release 'Bleep Blop' was playlisted by Osaka, Japan based radio station FM 802 and received support from several international indie bloggers. The band are currently working on their next release, due in early 2019.
