Hotly tipped Manchester band Fuzzy Sun today (7th July 2021) drop their brand new video for “Fake It”, the band’s first (and excellent) single of 2021, taken from a new EP due later this year.
Gorgeous harmonies on this self-recorded/produced in Stockport, guitar-soaked and ethereal track. Fuzzy Sun are: Lead singer and guitarist Kyle Ross, bassist Lewis Jobson, drummer Mitch Bancroft, George Fitzgibbon on keyboards and Raffaele Pani on guitar.
It’s a new sound for the hotly tipped five-piece band – a song about feeling disenchanted with society and putting on a brave face. A song inspired by a dark time, with the hope of things getting better.
The video was shot at Manchester’s Antwerp Mansion with producer and director Oscar Bernstein and captures the band’s love of David Lynch-style cinema, and also Doodlebug by Christopher Nolan was a reference point.
After a quick start on the scene that saw tours with major UK artists (Blossoms, The Wombats, Two Door Cinema Club) and their first run of European dates with pals Inhaler, sold out headline shows at Manchester’s Gorilla, Academy 3 and London’s Camden Assembly, and two EPs released, Fuzzy Sun hit the national airwaves with plays on BBC Radio 1, BBC 6Music and Radio X.
“Fake It” is out now, taken from their incoming EP, due late 2021. Fuzzy Sun will headline Manchester’s Academy 2 on Friday 10th December 2021 and dates in Nottingham and Newcastle:
Friday 27th August: Arboretum Garden Bar & Bandstand, Nottingham (w/ Kawala)
Saturday 23rd October: Hit The North, Newcastle
Friday 10th December: Academy 2, Manchester
