We were lucky enough to track down the trio Flawes to chat about their latest track ‘What’s a boy to do’ and chat about their record-breaking year! JC and Huss make up two-thirds of Flawes and after being members of rival bands in high school, they were reunited in London, met Freddie and never looked back. They tell me that they’re “not sure if it was by complete chance that it worked so well, or whether it was just meant to be…”
A 5-year successful stint as a group tells me that it was definitely meant to be! Their creative process runs like clockwork and that is not an easy thing to find… “Sometimes it will be a vocal melody and a few chords that I come up with and send to the boys to develop and we’ll go from there, or a loop Freddie has come up with which I write a vocal melody on top. Other times we’ll start from the bottom up with a drum beat Huss sends over. We always try not to put any rules on the creative process and try to keep it as open as possible. All three of us use logic so it’s quite handy to pass projects back and forth between us.”
Another sign that the creation of Flawes was fate is that all of three of their musical educations and influences seamlessly blend into their alternative pop style of music. With a common goal – for their “fans to feel a sense of escapism when they listen to (their) songs” and an eclectic amalgamation of inspiration, the third ingredient to their starry boy-band recipe is friendship. It is so clear when listening or watching to the band perform that their relationship is totally harmonious. The dynamic trio radiate positivity and optimism through their art, and if that’s not what we all need now, I don’t know what is!
In a surprise twist, having already grasped their modern pop sound, I asked who their dream artist to work with would be. “I think a dream collaboration for all of us would be with Nile Rogers! The guy is such an icon and we’d love to hear our music with his disco influence. Who knows maybe on our next record? Nile, if you’re reading this give us a call!” So Nile, you heard them..
