"Former Faces is the new face for the music of Ryan Parmenter (KG Bird, Cue the Moon), whose journey toward sonic bliss now takes him to the heavens via Silver Lake, crafting ambient melancholia for stargazing both real and imagined."

Buzzbands LA (Back Up a Minute)


"Breathtakingly gorgeous, with a heavy dose of melancholy and totally mesmerizing that is 'Back Up a Minute,' the new single by L.A. indie-rockers Former Faces."

Glam Glare (Back Up a Minute)


"The sound invokes a feeling of searching for the hell of it. Whatever lies at the end will always be unknown."

Feeding Ears (Back Up a Minute)


"While he maintains a modern style in the electronic scene, it is done with a retro nuance that takes its own shape in futuristic waves."

All Things Go (No Good Reason)


"The song blends the old and the new, holding together sparkling touches of modern electronic and psychedelic retro textures, with some soothing vocals to stand out over the brooding melody."

Going Solo (No Good Reason)


"Former Faces continues their dream-like journey with 'Weekend Mountain Man' – an intricately crafted mosaic of ambient sounds and production... Fans of Tame Impala and Radiohead will surely be into this one."

- Salacious Sound


"...'the Runaround' is a hazy dream reminiscent of Washed Out meets Tame Impala."

The Daily Listening


"...the true hero in this piece is the well-comprised balance of his enchanting lyrics, smooth percussion, break-beat synths, haunting vocal harmonies, and accentuating spoken word samples."

The Music Ninja (the Runaround)


"Simple, light instrumentals explode in a melodious cacophony of sound once the vocals set in, reverb blending everything together and making it feel as though you’re floating – perhaps in a hammock – somewhere far away."

- Impose (Weekend Mountain Man)
