Fake A Smile
Prom Dress

Fake A Smile is nothing short of the perfect moniker for this Bournemouth-based trio as they are truly the masters of mood. On their new track “Prom Dress”, they’ll have you drifting into bliss at the chorus and hunkering down with rough-edged vocals on the verses. Perhaps their citrus haze guitar riff and filtered nostalgia comes from producer Gianluca Buccellati (Arlo Parks, Biig Piig, White China). “Prom Dress” is an existential anthem that shines a light on past perceptions in the fresh eyes of adulthood.

Fake A Smile set out to introduce listeners to their “core sound” with this track, giving us just a taste of the grimacing vocals and textural sonics that are inherently a part of this band’s nature. They are the needle in the haystack of grunge meets coastal indie and if that doesn’t entice you, I don’t know what will.
