SINGLE: Touch N Go
ARTIST: Cheap Fakes
Beloved Brissie funk-machines Cheap Fakes have made a solid name for themselves over the years with their bombastic pop/brass/funk/ska infusion that's seen them kick butt at festivals and blow people's socks off all over the country. But just when you thought you'd heard it all, this dapper six-piece have recently dropped their newest single 'Touch N Go' - and it's Cheap Fakes as you've never head them before.
Don't despair, there's still a healthy dose of hazy brass and the smooth stylings of frontman Hayden Andrews, but 'Touch N Go' dips its toe into electro-land, with drum and bass pulsing throughout and a psychy-disco vibe kicking round the edges. And while it's quite a huge shift from 2015's ska fuelled 'Modern Vintage', this latest track showcases why the band has been able to maintain their enduring success , with Hayden stating: "We aren't sticking to any genres or styles; we're making music that we want to make...No boundaries... just to see where it goes organically. It's exciting and fresh."
