BMI Indie Spotlight: FAKE DAD

Posted in News on October 23, 2023

A L.A.-based duo comprised of Andrea de Varona and Josh Ford, Fake Dad play a unique hybrid of bedroom synth-pop and indie rock. Formed in 2020, the two members met at a college party in New York City’s East Village and have since been inseparable, meshing their individual visions to create a unique fusion of catchy, pop-laden hooks and sun-soaked guitars. The duo’s new five-track EP, Yerba Mala, finds the pair’s songs delving into interpersonal-relationship dynamics, illustrated with a collision of elements from rock, pop and electronic music. Andrea’s bilingual English/Spanish lyrics recount intimate personal narratives augmented with sweeping harmonies and sparkling pop melodies. Fake Dad have already garnered much deserved attention, landing over a dozen official Spotify playlists and selling out shows in their hometown. Yerba Mala is another chapter in their evolution as artists.
