False Hope for the Savage is an instrumental post rock group from Cardiff, Wales, comprised of members of Samoans, Cut Ribbons and The Echo And The Always. While the band cites among its influences the likes of Sigur Rós, And So I Watch You From Afar and Mogwai, that clout sounds evident on their upcoming sophomore EP. On II FHFTS deliver an excellent amalgam of warmth, technical skills and maturity, having managed to use in the best possible way those qualities which also characterize the acts they draw inspiration from.
II, like its self titled predecessor, is comprised of four tracks with numbered titles which continue to count from where the previous EP left off. VII (The Language Of Ghosts) is bringing together the more ambient side of FHFTS' sound with their heavier, shoegazing nuance, a compound which you'll find hard not to be impressed by.
II will be released on April 7th.
