31-35 Coate St, London E2 9AG
Fake Laugh's self-titled debut album finally arrives this July as the delicate accumulation of years of experimentation.
Unfurling slowly, the full length has been a gradual process: part playfulness, part search for pop perfection. Tuning into the digital disconnect of contemporary life, the album is a vivid rummage through the familiar worlds of love, confusion, and self-questioning, refocused through the bright lens of Berlin-born, London-based artist Kamran Khan.
A busy 2016 saw Khan release the energetic Ice EP, the bubbly trepidation of double A-side Mind Tricks/Birdsong Lullaby and the more complex and serene Great Ideas EP. All three were important steps towards setting the foundations for the forthcoming album. Khan brings the intimacy of his bedroom recordings and sentimental lyrics to glistening pop melodies that belie a much bigger and more accomplished sound.
Get lost, and be found again, all within the compact universe of his sun-dappled and thoroughly captivating performance.
