‘A songwriter blessed with incredible control’’ CLASH


‘Simply marvellous’ BBC introducing in the West

Faultress channels all the quirks and mystique of otherworldly art pop artists like Kate Bush, while also encapsulating a soulful avant-garde Bjork-esque splendour that commands your body to move to its bizarre rhythms. When the Horn Blows


‘The vocal performance is out of this world’ Lefuturewave


“I read that Marilyn Monroe could ‘turn off’ her persona to such a degree that she could walk through LA with noone recognising her. After coming out of a gaslighting and controlling relationship, I similarly felt that I was done putting on an act just to feel an approximation of love. Beating Heart is an ode to oxytocin - it started as a bit of a joke with a friend about wanting to be able to fuck someone without emotions getting in the way.”

About Faultress

Faultress is an extinct word for a female criminal, and this musical project is about wearing your unpolished faults and imperfections on your very female sleeve. As an artist, Faultress embodies the challenge to heterodoxy implied in her name, which she wields as a firebrand to write incisive and psychological songs that offer us a look into the complex fragmentation of feminine power, desire and mental health in a rapidly changing musical and cultural world. Faultress's prime influence is Kate Bush, a soul she shares a love of theatricality with - Faultress has a playwriting MA from RADA - alongside a diverse set of influences that includes the likes of James Blake, Aldous Harding, FKA Twigs and Joni Mitchell. Her full banshee show is a six-part girl choir replete with synths and drums. In her solo shows Faultress plays piano and loop stations. With the release of her 5 Myths EP, she reveals herself something of a polymath: lyricist, musician, singer and storyteller employing the full spectrum of her skillset to make unforgettably charged music.
