“Be real / don’t steal”. And just like that, “FAKIN'” the enigmatic new track from Birmingham/Berlin-hailed artist WEIRDO simmers into life, all ominous synths and thumping percussion. But its the hypnotic vocals of the musician that steals the show, commanding and self-assured – building to a crescendo in the chorus.
And the tongue-in-cheek, yet cutting lyrics tell a story of WEIRDO’s past observations and experiences surrounding human nature.
He explains: “‘Fakin” is a song I wrote about the world we live in, the people that surround us and the complexities of the modern age. I spent way too much time with and around materialistic people who were in denial of it and once I spent some time alone in thinking mode, I realised that honesty seems a thing of the past for many people nowadays…”
