Brooklyn’s Electro Pop Duo FAKE DAD With Scintillating Spark At The End Of The Tunnel – ‘PAINKILLER’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

13 September 2022

Artists: FAKE DAD
Who: Electropop duo Josh Ford and Andrea de Varona letting
us know from their Brooklyn apartment/studio that everything
is going to be okay.

New single: PAINKILLER

“Painkiller” is nostalgic, and cinematic, and captures the nuanced dissonance between feeling stuck and breaking free from your inner demons. This track is first and foremost an ode to a relationship between two extremely anxious individuals desperately looking inward for ways to love each other better. “Painkiller” is about more than self-medicating – it’s about self-sedation as a result of chronic existential pain, getting to a breaking point, and making an epic plea for reassurance that you’re going to get through it.

TUTV: This is an ideal post-summer-blues electro-pop tune. Andrea de Varona‘s yearning vocals set the tone here. It’s also a sign o’ the times reflection as Prince once sang about. No, not much has changed since then.

The past lockdown years were mind-damaging for most of us, but even harder for people with soul-crushing mixed-emotions, with more questions than answers about themselves, with severe mental problems (I know, I was there, it’s hell). Yet Painkiller has a scintillating shimmer. It’s that hopeful spark at the end of the tunnel if you want it. All together, unified,  we can survive.

Kill the pain here…
