FAITALA is a New Zealand/UK pop group. The band is led by Manchester-based Kiwi musician David Faitala and, as a three-piece, released their debut EP on Tiny Records, November 28th. The first single 'Forty-one' has received credits from BBC Introducing Manchester, Amazing Radio and Tom Robinson's Fresh Faves.

Formed in 2013, FAITALA were invited to play a live session on Marc Riley's BBC 6 show after he saw the band play locally at one of their early live shows.The infectious pop of the just released 'Plush' from that three song session was subsequently picked up and played extensively by fellow DJs Tom Robinson on his Music Introducing Mixtape, Gideon Coe, and XFM's John Kennedy.

Their debut single "Beasts" came out a year ago backed by a great remix by Dutch Uncles and received support from Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1 / BBC Introducing), Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music / BBC Introducing), Michelle Hussey (BBC Introducing Manchester), Shell Zenner (Amazing Radio).
