Backseat Mafia

unnamed (1)

Clearly by the name of the album this won’t be one for the kid’s collection but never the less FAKE CLUB boast a genre-defying ethos, sound and line-up that transcends them into a realm of their very own.

Who is FAKE CLUB? 

They are a London girl guitar band who don’t really like to be categorised as GIRL BAND but the members are female, the debut album, FUCKABLE’, is set to release on March 24th.
