Four Faces has today released their new single titled ‘Better Option’. Solid with a raucous intro just to entice, ‘Better Option’ becomes the actual better option for music aficionados, particularly guitar players, when you hear those duo six strings battle for dominance while the rest of the song chugs along and carries the perfectly fitting vocals along for the ride.
About Four Faces

Better Option is a joke that went too far, the first iteration of which was written and fully recorded by guitarist Eoin as a songwriting exercise one day in summer 2021.
“I didn’t think I’d ever use the song as it was way too silly for any of my projects, but when I showed it to the band while cobbling our first setlist together it was clear that we were into something” and it’s infectious energy has been evident in crowds at every Four Faces show.
‘’Better Option’’ stands as an ambitious rock/indie track with drums that knock and guitar parts that can be compared to the lead lines written by Thin Lizzy backed by the slick production of the bands guitarist Eoin. Frontman Daniel Ffrench Mentions ‘’ We’re here. We are out to make a statement as a band, from both a recorded and live perspective. There has been a healthy urgency in our camp to crack on this year and take things seriously. Summer has been good to us and we have a lot of music to put out and want to get on the road immediately.’’
The track was once again mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator Aidan Cunnigham and recorded at The Clinic Recording Studios by David Anthony Curley and Cian Synott.
The group are also due to release more dates for Autumn/Winter 2023, already being on the bill of Damien Dempsey’s shows in Belfast Friday 15th December in Mandela Hall, and closing out the tour with Friday 22nd of December in Vicar street.
