Fresh Meat Monday - Fake Major
Hello. We are a band from Glasgow called Fake Major. There are two of us. Me (Richard Ferguson) and him (David McGinty).
How would you describe the music you make?
We make interesting pop music with lots of dual vocals and harmonies.
How did you start out making music?
We have been writing/ playing music together since we met at high school. We played in a now extinct band for a good while, but decided to start something new for 2013, and now we are here!
What process goes into the way you write songs?
We usually start with an idea from one of us, maybe a good chorus or vocal melody, then sit down together and try to flesh out that idea. Most of our songs develop over at least a few weeks of writing and recording demos then lyrics come at the very end.
What can people expect from your live shows?
As there are only two of us, people can expect something a bit different from our live shows to what the hear on record from us. There are still lots of dual vocals, but with some pretty lo-fi, stripped back accompaniment. Having said that, we are in the process of putting a live band together to play some special shows and festivals over the summer, so watch this space…
What are you all listening to at the moment?
The National. Keaton Henson. Big Star. Frank Ocean. Neil Diamond.
What can we expect to see/hear from you in the future?
Our first EP (‘Have Plenty of Fun’) is out NOW! We are currently recording another EP, so you can expect to hear that later in the year. We are looking forward to playing some festivals this summer, and after that… we will be having plenty of fun. HA HA HA.
