UK guitar-pop trio FES are pleased to reveal the video for their latest single ‘Sun Visor’ which is released on all good digital service providers on 7th April 2022.


The track is the latest single to be taken from their debut album With Regards From Home set for release on 29th April 2022 via Small Pond Records.


Commenting on the track, guitarist Pollyanna Holland-Wing says: “This song is about being afraid about what you might find out if you go looking for answers. The theme originated from me being scared to go to the doctors.”


Previous singles ‘Clarinet’ and ‘Force Feed’ were released earlier this year, picking up support from Guitar World, Distorted Sound, Noizze, the Yorkshire Evening Post, Spotify’s Shockwave playlist and more.


The band recently announced a run of May 2022 UK + EU tour dates supporting Los Angeles duo Standards, as well as appearances at Portals Festival, Bad Pond Festival and ArcTanGent Festival 2022 (see below for listings).


Based between their two homes of Peterborough and Leeds, FES are completed by Pollyanna’s sibling Tom Holland-Wing on drums, and Matthew West on bass. Having formed in late 2016, the band quickly established a keen underground fanbase for themselves touring the UK with their high-energy stage show, slick tempo changes, and undeniable math-pop melodies.


“Originally the album started off as an EP to be released in 2020/21,” explains Pollyanna of the forthcoming record, “but as COVID hit we were forced to put that on hold. With so much time on our hands and gigging life on pause we decided to go BIG for our next release. We wrote new songs and tweaked the ones we had. The main themes of the album consist of dealing with death for the first time, self-reflection and mental health.”

More info:


Previously known as Flat Earth Society, the band made the decision to change their name to FES after being contacted one too many times by actual Flat Earthers—a subculture of conspiracy theorists who believe that the world is in fact flat, rather than spherical. Yes, these people really do walk amongst us.


Taking inspiration from a multitude of various math-rock bands and pop artists including Fish Tank, Signals, St Vincent, Paramore and Biffy Clyro, their songs are leant additional depth by their deftly-penned lyrical observations on themes of identity, mental health, nostalgia and grief.


Finishing up last year on a UK tour with Last Hyena and InTechnicolour, FES have so far released two four track EPs including You Do You (2017) and Lunar (2018) along with a split EP with Brighton math-rockers Exploder called Sleep Less in 2017.


"One of the most exhilarating math-pop bands to emerge from the UK in recent years" - Guitar World

"An irresistible dose of musical sugar…bouncy energy and killer melodies" - Noizze

“A killer math-pop sound” - Birthday Cake For Breakfast
