Fake A Smile

Friday 11th February

Tickets £6   | 19:30

Through a steady release of singles — their first release was in 2020 — Fake a Smile have developed a diverse and melodious sonic palette.

Take a bit of the panoramic, synthesised psych-pop popularised by the likes of Tame Impala ; then add the grit and catchy song-writing of Britain’s indie-rock scene: think Arctic Monkeys, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Sam Fender. This is the sound ‘Fake a Smile’ are trying to create; one that straddles the two genres and unites the chilled with the energetic.

It’s an ambition that mirrors their personal journey from growing up on the beaches of Bournemouth to their move to London’s concrete jungle. In many ways, ‘Fake a Smile’s’ music endeavours to unite both locations; to create a sound that’s at home whether one is dancing the night away in an urban bar or sitting alone and gazing upon the undulations of the evening tide.
