Speaker in Reverse
By Serenat Kivilcim
Speaker In Reverse (Link) is an indie-pop band from San Diego, CA that combines the intense feel of driving rock with the catchy rhythms of pop. Speaker In Reverse was founded by Faierman in 2014, with their first single “Holy Girl” released that May. The band’s influences include Mike Snow, Alt J, Jeff Buckley, Syd Barrett, and The Cure; thus creating a feel using harmony to achieve a unique and singular sound.
Their track “Holy Girl” offers a unique and smoothly infectious sound with a pedal steel providing a moody backdrop, while Itai Faierman’s vocals supplement the song with just enough emotion and subtlety.
Born on a central Israel army base, to South American parents, Itai Faierman grew up in New York City, studying piano at age 7, violin at age 10, and picking up guitar at age 15. Faierman’s music combines an advanced and complicated combination of musical theories that include hard rock, pop, with a seemingly classical “aroma”. Treat yourself to a brand new and memorable experience that will leave you wanting more!
Their latest single ” Blood & Heights” just recently came out, which is as good as their track Holy Girl. If you like Miike Snow, Alt J, Jeff Buckley, Syd Barrett, and The Cure, I am sure I’ll love and appreciate Speaker In Reverse’s music!
