Artist: Faunts, Album: Feel.Love.Thinking.Of., Song: Feel.Love.Thinking.Of.

The Faunts are a band from Edmonton, Alberta.  They are brothers, Rob, Steven and Tim Batke, Paul Arnusch and Scott Gallant.  They formed in 2000 and released their debut album in 2005.  Their sophomore release was an EP designed as a score for three independent films.  However, the title track, M4 (Part II), was used in the Xbox 360 game, Mass Effect, which opened the band's music up to a wider gaming audience.  That combined with a really cool video ( which garnered them some good rotation on MTV, sent the band out touring.  They released a remix album of previously recorded material to bridge the gap between M4 and their fourth release, Feel.Love.Thinking.Of..  They are purveyors of moody electronic rock and disperse heavy layers of sound.  Feel.Love.Thinking.Of. was released in 2009 with San Francisco label, Friendly Fire Recordings.  You can check out their video for this song on You Tube (  You can purchase this album on Itunes.  You can follow the band at  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
