Video: Weirdo – Fakin

Weirdo is a British act who is making waves in the electro pop world right now, with support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Jack Saunders. His new video Fakin takes on the world of internet fame, but all it not what it seems…

By Graeme Smith

The brash protagonist of Fakin is your classic “success story” with wealth and fame. But as the title of the track suggests, things aren’t going as well behind the phone camera. The video is soundtracked by Weirdo’s brand of moody, understated electro pop – a style that makes you dance and cry in equal measure.

Fakin acts as a warning to anyone out there who puts popularity above all else. You can check it out below.
