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…

Daily electricity to load your batteries

9 November 2021

Band: 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: I LIKE THE BEACH

Fake Dad: “We’re really pumped to share this single with you! It feels like
the start of a new era for us and we’re really hopeful about the future.”

Turn Up The Volume: Everything is not virus-free okay yet, but at least
the awful freedom-blocking lockdown crisis is behind us. I’m sure many
of us will appreciate and experience things – big and small – in life with
another, deeper intensity after the deadly pandemic. That’s exactly what
Fake Dad celebrates here… love, hope and faith. Let’s join them at the beach
and dance ecstatically with our loved ones to their new electro-disco banger
’till we’re dizzy.

Get up, stand up, clap your
hands and shake your hips.

Right here, right now…
