Indie rockers Retro Video Club are back with another high-octane anthem ‘Faking’

“​​Faking is about being bitter, and trying to leave one last dig at your ex before moving on with your life”

Returning with their next blistering indie-rock single, Edinburgh-based band Retro Video Club’s newest track, Faking, is a no holds barred rock and roll track about a past relationship that turned sour. Able to create unstoppable guitar riffs, a pounding drum backbone, and a bass that keeps on growling, Faking sounds most at home in a stadium, or being screamed along to by a festival crowd. Featuring frontman Liam Allison’s rasp in the vocals, the track sees him brutally recite text messages from an ex-lover, shouting how “I’m done with all the things that you gave me, arguments and sex that was overrated

“​​Faking is about being bitter, and trying to leave one last dig at your ex before moving on with your life” says the band, who are gearing up to support The Kooks at Glasgow’s O2 Academy this February, having already supported other indie giants like The Libertines before. “It’s the age-old tale of a lover scorned, and how in the 21st century, people get their licks in.”

Bursting onto the scene in 2017, Retro Video Club have been devoted to bringing us arena-ready indie rock belters ever since. Ready to visit York, Stoke, and Cardiff for a run of Independent Venue Week shows from 3rd-5th February, Faking is set to be the Scottish four-piece’s return to releasing fuzz-laden guitar music.
