Flecks continue their love affair with big synths and drum machines in their catchiest song yet.
Flecks, AKA Freya Monks and Scott Halliday, are set to release their brand new synth-pop single 'Cinematic Heartbreak' this Sunday, June 28.
'Cinematic Heartbreak’ is a story of love and conflict between two characters, Red Eyes and Big Lies, and how attempt to navigate their lives through struggle and vastly distant worlds.
Monks and Halliday have been writing songs together for the last eight years, collaborating together through penmanship and production.
Inspired by classic '80s movies and dark, atmospheric film scores, the duo released their debut EP 'Girl' back in 2016 in Dublin and have been gaining national radio play ever since.
Their EP received critical acclaim as well as landing the pair a placement in RTÉ’s thrilling drama Striking Out with their track ‘Objects of Desire’.
In 2018, Flecks released their most streamed song to date - 'Samurai' - a song about becoming a warrior in your own life by standing up to those you fear the most.
Since the inclusion of ‘Samurai’ on Spotify’s New Music Friday UK playlist in 2018, Flecks have gained and continue to gain a steady following and listenership.
The dark and mysterious ‘Doubles’ came last year, written about secret lives and star-crossed lovers.
2020 has already seen the release of singles ‘You Bet I Would’ and ‘Hold On’, which cemented their path as artists to watch on the Irish pop scene.
