It’s an accessible sound with dreamy guitar lines and effortlessly smooth vocals that almost anyone can find something to like in and is one of my favorite EPs of the year. -The 405

FAIRCHILD's blend of intimate, yet epic indie rock, is a theme that tightly winds through their 'Sadako' EP, and has drawn comparisons to the likes of The Temper Trap, Cayucas and Two Door Cinema Club.
Japan has always been a special place to the band as it’s where their first overseas tour took them. The EP’s simple, almost abstract title harks back to their respect for the country and American author Eleanor Coerr's, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Coerr's book tells the story of a Japanese girl who was two years old when the devastating Hiroshima atomic bomb was dropped. She became very ill and was told of the legend if you make 1,000 paper cranes it can make you better. Feeling inspired by this story, a friend of vocalist Adam Lyons made him 1,000 paper cranes for good luck while he was at university. They hang above his bedroom, where the band recorded and produced the EP.
After spending two months working on the six-track EP, recording in vocalist Adam Lyons’s bedroom, it was mixed by Catherine Marks (Foals, Wolf Alice, The Killers) at London’s Assault & Battery Studios. Marks also recorded and produced the band’s debut EP ‘Burning Feet', which they released earlier this year after some years experimenting with their sound. The band also includes Adam's older brother Nathan Lyons on keys, guitarists Patrick Huerto and Tim Voeten, bassist Tommy Davies and drummer James Alexander.
