FALSE ADVERTISING are a three-piece indie band who specialise in drenching the catchiest of hooks in the fizziest of guitar-fuzz, the trio developed as much of a name for themselves as “the ultimate DIY band” (self-producing all of their own music and music videos) as they have for their energetic, guttural, instrument-swapping live dynamics.
They have revealed the video for their new single ‘Not My Fault’ (check it out below) and are looking ahead to a run of festival appearances over the coming months - full dates below:
The track is the first in a run of standalone releases that the band plan to release throughout the first half of this year, building on their caustic, fuzz-drenched approach to alternative rock carrying echoes of underground ‘90s champions Cave In, Hundred Reasons, Idlewild and Garbage.
Explaining the concept for the video, the band said: “We basically just wanted to be selfish and have a great day, so we went and spent loads of money on arcade machines, grilled cheese and alcohol. The song is about being semi-oblivious and detached from the crazy political landscape that we reside within these days, so we thought fuck it, let’s be oblivious and do whatever the hell we want to bring it to life.""We filmed, directed and edited it ourselves as we do with the majority of our music, artwork and videos. You can tell this because there is only one shot when all three of us are in it together, which we got Chris’s girlfriend Urszula to shoot for us.”
