Faux Real new self-titled EP out now


Franco-American avant-pop duo Faux Real have unveiled their debut self-titled EP. Co-produced by Faux Real with Jay Watson (Tame Impala, Pond, GUM), FAUX REAL is available now at all DSPs.

"The EP tells the story of the inception of 'faux realism,'” Faux Real member Virgil Arndt said in a new interview with i-D. "We draw from our own lives and obsessions and fears."
Known for the strength of their mysterious 70's/80's glam and post-punk minimalistic live shows, the duo performed the entire EP from start to finish during a unique digital release party via Instagram live.

For more information, please follow Faux Real on Instagram.

Earlier this month, Faux Real premiered one of the EP's standout tracks, "Kindred Spirit," via PAPER.

"Kindred Spirit" is joined by a highly entertaining companion video shot in Mexico City, streaming now on Faux Real's official YouTube channel.

An ode to feral kinship defining and dividing Faux Real’s take on duality, “Kindred Spirit” serves as an anthem to one’s spirit animal; a hymn on how to best embrace and honor our inner selves.

Directed by Faux Real, the video sees the pair at grasps with the elements, likening brotherhood to the forces of nature that unite us and positioning the brothers as champions in the fight against insecurity.


FAUX REAL was first heralded last month by the spellbinding single, "Boss Sweet;" the track is also accompanied by an equally compelling companion video.

FAUX REAL also includes the acclaimed single, “Second Sweat,” joined by its own creatively choreographed and self-directed companion video, both streaming on their official YouTube channel.



In the spring of 2018, Franco-American brothers Elliott and Virgile Arndt invoked the union of their inner gene genies and gave birth to Faux Real.

As they conceived it, Faux Realism combines elements of post-punk, glam rock, and contemporary R&B with a unique sense of humor, boy band tropes, and a forward-thinking approach to modern pop culture.

Far before releasing any music, Faux Real began performing live, wooing half-confused, half-amused crowds one unconventional venue at a time.

Building on a lifetime of inside jokes and shared mp3 libraries, the Arndt brothers created a signature show that simultaneously fetishizes, destroys, and re-invents their kinship through compelling choreography, playfully exploring the boundaries of duality, ridicule, and sexuality [full bio].
