Fake Laugh announce self-tilted debut album
Indie pop band Fake Laugh have announced their self-tilted debut album.
Ex-The Japanese House member and Fake Laugh's front man Kamran Khan has spent 2016 balancing his time between touring and writing and recording Fake Laugh's first album. Although he has admitted to the band being 'a bit of fun on the side' it's now his sole focus.
An obvious music buff, Khan explains how he wanted the album to pan out: “I wanted to make a point of writing more traditional and direct songs. I wanted to make sure that every part I wrote for each instrument was as melodious as possible. That sort of super satisfying feeling you can get from music sometimes is the aim for to me. The challenge is being able to hit that spot.”
Teaming up with the producer, Theo Verney, Khan wanted to blend the raw intimacy of his bedroom recordings with melodic immediacy and a dreamy lyricism to create 'ambitious, good pop songs.'

Fake Laugh is available July 28th on Headcount records.
