Fake Guns’ new single, “Green”, is a wild rock track that, true to Fitts’ songwriting ability, is ridiculously infectious. Fake Guns at first remained mysterious but now we all know who is responsible for the monstrously delicious indie rock they’ve been cranking out. Fake Guns is the work of Alex Fitts (of the Kickdrums, see our interview here) and Chris Wall. Following their previous releases, “Yellow” and “Blue”, the duo is back with another color of the rainbow, “Green.”
With Alex Fitts of The Kickdrums on vocals and his partner in crime, Chris Wall on drums , Fake Guns’ debut track, “Blue”, is the perfect resuscitation for summer. The track is laced with a killer chorus, sizzling summer synths and a melody that’s made to be blasted from your car stereo.
The duo has been remaining relatively mysterious and all they’re willing to reveal about themselves is that besides “Blue”, more music is to come!
SWIMM is a longstanding favorite of MFL, and Fake Guns, becoming a favorite remixer of MFL favorites! Brooklyn producer Fake Guns is gaining momentum with the release of “Outcast” by Mainland and now the track “Belly” by LA band, SWIMM.
Fake Guns tacks on fuzzy buzzin’ synths, twinkling harp-like sounds, and an insanely catchy rhythm and percussion layer to SWIMM’s already catchy track. Fake Guns adds an air of lightness to “Belly.” The track wants to just float away! SWIMM said this about the Fake Guns remix:
“Every once in a while, someone does more of a reimagining of a song than a remix and you kind of wish you had imagined it that way the first time. This is one of those times”.
Just as sparkly as the original track, Brooklyn-based producer, Fake Guns’ remix of NYC band, Mainland’s track “Outcast” is irrefutably dance-worthy. This remix is the first remix delivered to the world by Fake Guns. Check it out!
Mainland has been gaining momentum exponentially since the release of their debut, Girls Unknown EP, followed by the Shiner EP which was produced by Jim Eno of Spoon. Mainland’s ability to spin stories of late night escapades in NYC amidst beckoning guitar riffs, contagious choruses and dance-able beats has gotten to where they are now.
