The synth-pop anthem follows the release of the lauded ‘How Do I Cry?’.
Genre-bending Brooklyn duo Fake Dad and their quirky, nostalgic sound have been really making a name for themselves over the last few years, earning hundreds of thousands of streams with their charming and distinctive sounds, and showcasing their winning creativity and personality throughout.
The latest release from the outfit is ‘Painkiller’, a bittersweet synth-pop anthem that makes full use of its retro-inspired electronic soundscape, boasting a sound that feels both timeless and nostalgic while packing a real modern flair and sense of excitement. The track’s torn narrative between feeling trapped and breaking free creates an uneasy, yet memorable juxtaposition, and just adds to the entirely fresh and full of life feeling of the duo and the track. Another emphatic example of what makes Fake Dad feel so distinctive and unlike anything else.
