New U.K. based rock band Fainites have just released their debut EP Battle Scars with distribution in the U.S. from Gravel Entertainment. To help promote the release, the band has shared the video for new single "Geraldine." "Geraldine" blends alternative rock with gritty guitar riffs and driving rhythms and yearning melodies which makes for an impactful introduction to the band's music.
"Geraldine' was inspired by the true story of Geraldine Largay, a woman who went missing in 2013 while hiking on an Appalachian trail," says frontman Chris Perrin. "She’d gotten lost and managed to survive 26 days in the wild before dying alone in her tent, surrounded by goodbye letters she had written to her loved ones. Her body wasn’t found for over two years. I don’t usually write songs from the perspective of other people’s lives, but Geraldine’s story really hit me. It’s not a stereotypical subject for a rock song, but I’d like to think the energy and melody is a fitting tribute to a woman who obviously had a real zest for life."
