THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Blending retro synths with modern tools, Head Fake’s trio of semi-anonymous (music before beauty) veteran artists/producers are bringing the unique sounds and energy of transformational ’80s music to the ears of both a new generation and their nostalgic parents. Recorded in studios in London, New Jersey, Los Angeles and Miami, Head Fake seamlessly blend the cross-pond and cross-continental radio influences of their youth into a “could-have-been-hits-back-then” collection of new music.
Collectively, Head Fake boast production credits on countless albums and singles from celebrated industry names, independent acts and film soundtracks. Evolving from a late night jam session by the two founding members, Head Fake received a strong critical reception to their first EP, quickly followed up with EP2, which included an expansion into crossover pop and country. EP3 returns to the core “new wave” sound, with a seven-song offering that echoes the new music playlists of ’80s alternative radio. Focus tracks Hollywood Dreams and Silence demonstrate the band’s ability to pay tribute to ’80s themes with depth both in the music and the lyrical content.”
