Liverpool may not seem like a hot bed of underground activity, but in truth its roots have always remained stronger than any press-led reputation. Granted, its heritage is one harder to surpass than most given a certain Fab Four, but on hearing Stefanie Chew’s Faded Gold project, it’s as if the city’s heart was pumping ethereal blood hiding underneath an industrial corps.

Now based in London, and soon to be welcomed into its heady status with a rare live performance supporting Teengirl Fantasy at venue-a-la-mode Birthdays in October, Chew’s hypnotic brand of synth-led soundscapes is sure to find plenty a broken heart to weld back together. Reminiscent of Emeralds at their most kinetic with more than a knowing hint of forelorn romanticism, Faded Gold’s name is sure to rightfully make even more dreamers’ hearts flutter.
