FAUX REAL

RELEASE NEW SINGLE “LOVE ON THE GROUND”

UNVEIL COVER AND TRACKLIST FOR DEBUT ALBUM, FAUX EVER, OUT ON OCTOBER 11 2024 VIA CITY SLANG

INTERNATIONAL TOUR INCLUDING 3 x PERFORMANCES AT THE GREAT ESCAPE, PLUS WIDE AWAKE AND BEST KEPT SECRET FESTIVALS, AND US DATES

Visionary art-pop duo Faux Real are back with a bang with their playfully absurd, tragically human new single, “Love On The Ground,” available now via City Slang Records. Fusing ecological concern with adulterous existentialism, “Love On The Ground” finds the duo – a.k.a. Los Angeles-based Franco-American brothers Virgile and Elliott Arndt – at their most vulnerable and surreal thus far, this time bringing aspects of their genre-bending and gravity-defying live shows to the table in the form of soaring harmonies, off-the-wall lyricism, and offbeat melodrama. True alternative jesters infiltrating the pop space, Faux Real continue to blur the line between the fake, the real, and the undeniable.


Faux Real understand how to create these infectious arrangements that give desire, direction and this creative hook. The electronic textures that emerge shape this bountiful landscape and then the vocal notes move that affection through the composition with ease.

“Love On The Ground” heralds Faux Real’s long-awaited debut albumFaux Ever, arriving at last via City Slang on 11 October 2024. A self-described “11-piece symphony for head-banging and longing,” the album sees the fraternal duo continuing to play on the outskirts of language and sound, exploring themes of heartbreak, labour, and the home with harmonies and humour, playful beats, and en franglais.

Recorded between Paris, New York, London, Los Angeles, and Provence, Faux Ever thrusts Faux Real’s sultry, surreal, and unclassifiable sound towards a glossier pop horizon, an existential sonic pastiche with a glistening digital sheen.
 
Faux Ever also includes such certified bangers as the bold, glitchy, and infectious “Rent Free” and the acclaimed “Faux Maux,” both available everywhere now alongside self-directed official music videos.
 
“We’re always questioning things and turning them upside down,” says Elliot Arndt. “Our sound has never been more personal,” added Virgile Arndt. “The method to this specific madness has been one of constant change, with our studio locale never fixed, always more minimal than the last. Faux Ever is a reflection on art, brotherhood, authenticity, faults and triumphs.”

About today’s album announcement, the duo said:
“It feels pretty insane to finally announce our first full-length record. Been a while in the making and we couldn’t be more excited with how it turned out. After years of work between different studios, homes and cities, we like to think we’ve encapsulated the true essence of Faux Real into these 11 songs. We’d like to thank all of you for your continued support since the start of this journey. We promise it was worth the wait. For now, go blast “Love On the Ground”, buy tickets to our upcoming tour and come witness the premiere of Faux Ever in its rawest, most unhinged form.
 
Really,
Elliott & Virgil”
