Brooklyn based singer-songwriter and producer Richard Orofino unleashes indie anthem ‘Fake Me’
Having already collaborated with a diverse group of artists across the world including Jasper Leak (Sia), Michael Tighe (Jeff Buckley), Kennedy (BØRNS), Mike Irish (X Ambassadors), Rob Persaud and Rami Jrade to name a few, Richard Orofino is now taking centre stage in his latest masterpiece.
Titled ‘Fake Me‘, Richard Orofino’s dark pop masterpiece specialises in a thought-provoking soundscape with layers of charisma.
Switching between new wave pop and indie-pop, ‘Fake Me’ is a moody offering that will grab your attention and never let it go.
Describing the meaning behind ‘Fake Me’, Orofino explains, “Fake me is about your own doppelganger. The self-punishing evil twin that constantly tries to convince you that what you believe to be truthful about yourself, is wrong.
I live in this dilemma a lot, where I have some sort of issue involving myself and then decide to confide in myself only to find I’m my own biggest enemy.
This self-doubting twin of mine who lives in my head, always tries to tell me to do things for other people. “Give other people what they want, and you will find yourself in a successful position.”
Rather than creating and working on something that I most definitely love and feels personal, be that image of what you expect other people to respond to.”
An artist still very much at the beginning of his career, if ‘Fake Me’ is anything to go by, Richard is about to become the next pop icon.
