Former Faces is a groove-indie rock quartet based in the music hotbed of Silver Lake that creates fluid, cerebral sounds reminiscent of The War On Drugs, Tame Impala, Jim James, and Deerhunter, to name a few. The band couples their music with compelling imagery and dream-like visuals - connecting their listeners' eyes and ears for an unparalleled ethereal experience.
After releasing his debut self-produced EP Swimming in Circles in June of 2017, vocalist & founder Ryan Parmenter enlisted the skills of David Lee (guitar), Brian Blake (bass), and Abraham Kim (drums) to join the band and create Foreign Nature - a collection of inventive, colorful, and immersive dreamscapes that make up Former Faces' first full-length album released in the Summer of 2018.
The band then immediately embarked on their next ambitious venture - releasing a song a month for 2 years straight in the form of 4 EPs. Chapter 1 of that story began on Halloween of 2018 with the release of their single Open The Gates.
