“Hot Streak” Review
The Reclusive Blogger
‘“Hot Streak” is a catchy Electro-Pop ditty with a bit of New York punk strut and added RnB vibes for great measure. The lead singer’s voice has a unique tonality to it which adds something to the song. A little bit of Rock and Roll and a little bit of soul that bring a certain grittiness to a track that has a luster due to it’s Pop beat. The lyrics as the title “Hot Streak” hints at are about the joy, happiness and sometimes invincibility feeling one might attain when everything is going their way or going perfectly. Stuff that’s very relatable. ‘

The Carlow Chronicle
‘ Faulkner’s debut album is in the works and Farougias believes that Hot Streak is a teaser for it. “They [the fans] should definitely expect a sort of a turn from the theme [from the Revanchist EP to Hot Streak]. I think there’ll be a good balance between the album and the EP. The album is not a straight-up continuation from Revanchist.” ‘

Unclear Magazine “Hot Streak” Review
“Like many Faulkner songs, Hot Streak begins with amazing instrumentals, creating anticipation for the perfectly thought-out lyrics. The alternative, almost synth-80’s pop sound, creates for a nostalgic sound mixed with modern elements, rallying in fans of all ages to enjoy the sound. The lyrics, nonetheless, are always something consistently stunning with Faulkner music. The repeating of, “I will stand by you,” in the chorus is a saying that will hold the emotions of any listener, without creating a somber tone. The band is known for creating music with an inspirational sound, maybe without even the intent of creating something like this.”
i99 Music Radio Faulkner “Hot Streak”
“If you’re looking for a song with groovy guitar, fun synths, and sharp vocals then look no further as this song has all of the above! The song is a bit anthemic as it repeats “I will stand by you,” but in the best way possible. There’s no way you can listen to “Hot Streak” and not want to get up and dance! ”

Young Hollywood Artist Spotlight
‘Needless to say, after featuring the bi-coastal multi-genre band Faulkner as an Artist to Watch almost exactly a year ago, we were thrilled to hear that they would be releasing new music. It’s been a while and we are more than ready for it.The four-piece band, consisting of members Lucas Asher (vocals/guitar/Songwriter), Eric Scullin (vocals/multi-instrumentalist/Producer), Dimitri Farougias (bass), and Chris Hogan (drums), lives and works in Venice, California, has been shaking up the music industry since they debuted in 2013 and have still managed to maintain their distinct vibe. Since then, they have been working on incredible new music that is sure to please those who appreciate their form of alternative rock. The ultimate validation of Faulkner’s success came when they gained recognition from some of their biggest inspirations such as The Strokes, The Killers, and Wu-Tang Clan (who have contributed to their music since). It has a very lively vibe that is reminiscent of multiple stars of rock history’s past. The band has not shied away from recounting their struggles and make their emotions tangible in their music, which is refreshing in an industry where artists like to gloss over their real-life problems and sing about superficiality.’
Huffington Post Faulkner Hits it with ESPN
“While watching sports on ESPN, you might have noticed a catchy little tune promoting either the U.S. Open, Major League Baseball or the NFL. The song, “NY Anthem“ is not by Carrie Underwood or Faith Hill, but by a band new to the music scene called Faulkner.”

To all our LGBTQ brothers and sisters; you’ve shown us and the entire world a level of courage, strength, and pride second to none. Against all biases, against all odds, you are still fighting and you are winning. We stand by you.”

Spin on RZA & Faulkner’s “NY Anthem”

Hollywood Music Magazine Releases “Waters Are A Rising”
Hollywood Music Magazine
“With a title translating to “someone who advocates revenge” in French, the EP is an epic collage of interconnected concepts addressing retribution, hustling, and dislocated youth (inspired by frontman Lucas Asher’s time spent as an orphaned teenager on the streets of Brooklyn). Asher also keeps a copy of the book 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene under his pillow, which perennially affects his Machiavellian lyrics. By creating a themed collection of sonically varied singles with layered messages, FAULKNER has proven themselves as true auteurs who go above and beyond for the sake of sustainable art.”
