Manchester risers Fuzzy Sun today share their brand new video for ‘Fake It’, the band’s first single of 2021 taken from a new EP due later this year.
Marking a new era for the four-piece, ‘Fake It’ finds Fuzzy Sun more confident and clear in their identity than ever before. Self-recorded and produced in Stockport, the ambitious, endlessly catchy guitar-driven anthem sees their sound elevated by soaring melodies and new-found cinematic textures – destined for raucous scenes in any live setting.
Speaking about their new direction, vocalist and guitarist Kyle Ross elaborates, “We wanted to make an impact with the new single, pushing a new creative direction for the band, as I think we have really found a sound that excites us and we feel comfortable with.”
Described by Fuzzy Sun as a “real balls to the wall guitar tune with flare” – the self-recorded and produced ‘Fake It’ finds Fuzzy Sun influenced by staple artists including Radiohead, Blur and The Smashing Pumpkins; elevating their anthemic, guitar-driven song writing with cinematic textures which sit beneath soaring melodies
“The song itself is about feeling rather disenchanted with society and putting on a brave face when in fact you feel the complete opposite, which is something we can all relate to. It was inspired by a dark time, with the hope of things getting better.”, tells Kyle.
After a quick start on the scene that saw tours with major UK artists and their first run of European dates, sold out headline shows at Manchester’s Gorilla, Academy 3 and London’s Camden Assembly – Fuzzy Sun, tipped by everyone from NME’s 100 List, DORK, Earmilk, Gigwise, BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio X and Spotify’s New Music Friday UK and Hot New Bands playlists take on 2021 fuelled by boundless energy and an unstoppable ethos.
