REVIEW: damn! by My Pet Fauxes

My Pet Fauxes are back with a bang, and their latest single ‘damn!’ certainly won’t disappoint. Based in Nottingham, UK, My Pet Fauxes have been described as "one of the finest live acts around" by BBC Introducing, with their second single ‘Twist It’ reaching over 60,000 Spotify streams. It’s been a year since their last release, but it is definitely worth the wait.



Stripped back synths and solo vocals start this track, building to a texture of funky polyrhythms and a guitar hook that you won’t be able to get out of your head. The drums are punchy and tight, whilst the bass is decisive and electric. After the bridge, the vocals crescendo to a gritty reprise, followed by soft pastel synths which frame the song. The result? A flawless track, full of indie pop goodness.






If you’re a fan of upbeat indie-pop such as The 1975, you’ll love My Pet Fauxes. Check them out on Spotify, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
