THE FAIM have released their second album TALK, TALK via BMG, the follow up to the band’s 2019 debut State Of Mind and touches on themes of nostalgia, celebration, escapism, and self-discovery.
Recorded between Los Angeles, Melbourne and Perth, the band worked with several producers on the album, including Zakk Cervini (Bring Me The Horizon, Yungblud, Machine Gun Kelly), Erik Ron (Panic At The Disco, Godsmack, Set It Off) and Matthew Pauling (Palaye Royale, 5 Seconds Of Summer, State Champs) to showcase their vast range of styles and tones.
The album features the adrenaline-charged single The Hills and the self-produced Me Because Of You both of which are climbing international radio charts, alongside the celebratory ERA, the captivating The Alchemist, the driving pop-rock anthem Ease My Mind, and the upbeat pop-rock track Flowers.

Since forming in Perth in 2014, THE FAIM (French for ‘the hunger’) have built a huge global following, performing at major festivals including Reading and Leeds, Slam Dunk and Lollapalooza and playing sold-out headline shows around the world. They have accumulated over 150 million streams and written and worked with the likes of Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy), Mark Hoppus (blink-182), Josh Dunn (Twenty-One Pilots) and Ashton Irwin (5 Seconds Of Summer).
The band’s 2018 single Summer Is A Curse was featured in an advertising campaign for Jeep, while the likes of Coca Cola and MTV have also licensed their music. To date, the band have released one EP (Summer Is A Curse) and their debut full-length LP (State Of Mind in 2019) and received praise and support from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, BBC Radio One, Kerrang, Rock Sound, Billboard, Forbes, and Alternative Press.
