Faye Webster – Better Distractions
Atlanta-based musician Faye Webster shares a new standalone single/video, “In a Good Way.” The track follows 2019’s acclaimed Atlanta Millionaires Club, which appeared on many year-end lists such as Pitchfork, Stereogum, Vice, Consequence of Sound and more. “In a Good Way” leans into a universe of willowy R&B. Guitar flourishes and the swell of a string quartet float above a sparse rhythm section, evolving into a deep-grooving jam. Its video was directed by Faye and Hunter Airheart, who she previously collaborated with for the“Kingston” and “Room Temperature” videos.
Faye’s effortless songwriting and near-whisper delivery highlight the extraordinary detail and beauty in her arrangements. After writing at her home, she and her band head to her favorite Athens studio and lay down the track live, recording with minimal overdubs. For Faye, it’s imperative to capture the song in a studio while still fresh; an exercise in preserving a vibe. This is why Faye’s recordings have an ephemeral quality, a fleeting moment captured in the studio.
