"Perfect for an hour spent brooding in front of a rain-splattered window at dusk."
"Though Fassine’s debut album has moments of almost supernatural beauty, it’s also shot through with the sinister…"
"Visual elements are a vital part of what Fassine create. They write in mind of a noir landscape, taking the listener
through a perfectly subtle darkness, imagined to a sound that connects with the listener in more than just the audible sense."
'Ones to watch.'
Fassine are a London trio who made a name for themselves with their icy, cinematic take on electronic music for ‘Dialectik' - a debut album that saw them gain praise & support from the likes of Spin, Q Magazine, Clash, The Independent, The 405, The Guardian, Giles Peterson, BBC 6 Music & more.
Fassine have a keen ear for the cinematic with their songs featuring as the backdrop of hit TV drama’s including; Netflix’s Velvet Buzzsaw, Fox’s ‘Lucifer’, Sky Atlantic’s 'The Following’, Orpah Winfrey’s Queen Sugar & more.
The band have been recognised for their heavy, industrial re-working of ‘That Wave’, an original song by XTC. Fassine’s version of the track & an interview with the band featured on the new XTC documentary ‘This Is Pop’ available on SKY ARTS and NOW.
‘Sunshine’ set the tone perfectly for the album which was inspired by the typical British, cold and austere oppressive atmosphere breathed into 1970’s and 80’s TV dramas. Such dramas included: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy' and 'Edge of Darkness', which were built in these vast settings with great distance. Connecting the dots, however, were all the tiny conversations
Second album Gourami featured the single, ‘Feather Jesus’ which was aired on Fox’s 'Lucifer'. The band say of the track,‘The reaction to the song was wonderful; 'Feather Jesus’ is about death & loss and how people cope, celebrate and even embrace it’.
Second single, Ursa Minor is an ode to David Bowie and is featured here on Clash Magazine. Third single, 'Palio', a track about the glorious, passionate and patriotic race in Sienna is featured here on The Independent.
