Fake Laugh – Fake Laugh

Fake Laugh – Fake Laugh

Released July 28th, 2017

Fake Laugh has been a side project for Kamran Khan for a few years now having teased their fans with a splattering of singles and EPs over the last few years but now their self-titled debut album provides 11 songs that capture their sound. The London-based, Berlin-born musician has been playing in both Japanese Hour and Lovepark primarily. Fake Laugh for the most part is a tiring and uneventful listen. Every track carries the same vibe and just falls short of the catchy hook or chorus that you’re hoping for. With every song having such a similar sonic pallet some of the tracks get lost, exposing some of Khan’s weaker songwriting. There are a few moments where it works, notably “Short of Breath,” but for most of the songs do not seem to warrant a relisten.
