About this item

Hailing from Brighton, TNF is fronted by singer and songwriter Will Charlton, whose sublimely controlled baritone croon sits a-top a wall of guitar and the orchestral arrangements of a band whose sound flits between tender and grandeur. Based around family, love and personal battles, youth and adulthood, and co-written with guitarist Sam Baldwin, the record’s fourteen reflective songs narrate Charlton’s different relationships as he relocated between towns and territories 

The music is about being young and naive, "all those things you’re warned about in your youth that you inevitably become,” says Charlton, trying to come to an understanding of how things always seem to turn out the same.” The new single 'Fritter Away’ "is written as a letter to my nephew to warn him what happens as you get older; the transition between youth and adulthood and the emotions he is still too young to "understand,” 

'Fritter Away’ is mixed and produced by Dave Izumi, who’s flair and flavour comes from his beautifully crafted Echo Zoo Studios in Eastbourne. “It's full of reel to reel tape machines, old synths, steinway pianos, a rhino’s head, a mousse’s head and Tony Visconti’s old mixer..."

The New Faith have created a peerless union of relatable lyrics, traditional songwriting and audacious arrangements; a stunning song-book filled with variety and colour.
