Retro Video Club have returned with yet another soaring anthem destined for the stadiums, ‘Faking’.
The blistering new single hears front man Liam Allison vehemently recite texts from an ex-lover, as a combination of stomping drums, roaring bass, and scorching guitars lifts the track skywards.
One to scream at the top of your lungs and put two fingers up in the air to, the band say,
“Faking is about being bitter, and trying to leave one last dig at your ex before moving on with your life. It's the age old tale of a lover scorned, and how in the 21st century, people get their licks in.”
The Edinburgh-based band are kicked off 2022 in commanding fashion. Having seen out 2021 with their first tour of the UK, which included a sold-out date at Glasgow’s 1300 capacity SGW3, Retro Video Club recently played to their biggest audiences to date, as they supported The Kooks for two nights at Glasgow’s 2500 capacity O2 Academy. They recently visited York, Stoke and Cardiff for a run of Independent Venue Week shows, being the first since the forced postponement of two back-to-back sold-out nights at their infamous hometown venue, King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, due to Covid last year.
Retro Video Club burst onto the scene in 2018 with a series of high-octane single releases and a sell-out hometown show at Edinburgh’s 650 capacity Liquid Rooms. In 2019, they were selling out 1,000 capacity venues and sharing stages with The Libertines among others. With their new songs, Retro Video Club sound like a band equipped to play the biggest of stages and with even more to come later this year, the band are determined to push things as far as possible.
