I’m in Love With Fake Laugh

fakelaughListening to the musical elements of this brand new single from Fake Laugh might give you the wrong impression; it looks at a lot of the current market with those dreamy bending guitar chords a la Captured Tracks stable. But, the vocal approach really turns the song on its side, offering up a juxtaposed warmth that you don’t usually see; I particularly like the clarity of the voice too…you can completely understand the lyrics, which isn’t always the case. Get behind this group now before they’re no longer a small little secret in the music community.

Swinging New Music from Fake Laugh

1292079_548783275186775_1750201815_oAnother month, another great postcard single from the lads over at Art Is Hard.  Their newest single comes courtesy of Fake Laugh, who are offering up this swinging bit of indiepop, which reminds me of some local Austin acts like Shivery Shakes.  I like the way the vocal spins a bit into different tunes, while the guitars sharply encourage foot tapping.  You should definitely give this tune enough time to make it all the way up to the chorus; it’s a beautiful release that makes the song completely worth it, as if you needed something more.  I guess I’m just going bust out great pop tracks for the world today…nothing wrong with that in my mind.
