Faker are on their way back

Our favourite Sydney boys Faker are back and excited to offer up the first taste of their new record; a CSS remix of the track Dangerous, the first taste of new music to come from the band since October 2008.

With the single version of Dangerous set for a June 17 release, Nathan and Nic were so excited on hearing the CSS interpretation of the track that they could not wait for fans to hear it. You can download the remix for free at faker.com.au/freedownload

CSS (Brazil’s professional purveyors of fine party) put the balloons and streamers down for four and a half minutes of emotionally charged electro pop. Dangerous takes a floor-ready turn among tinkling piano keys and warm, synthetic bass.

The remix came about after a rather fortuitous meeting on the other side of the world. Nathan, who had spent extended periods of time travelling around South America looking for creative inspiration for the new record, had decided he would love to bump into Adriano from CSS in Sao Paulo, Brazil where the band CSS are based. And the next day, in a city of 20 million people, Nathan stumbled across Adriano in a small book shop; they got chatting and, after catching up again in Australia, they got to work on this remix of Dangerous.

Over the weekend the guys also announced a Sydney all ages show with FBi headlining “Choose Your Own Adventure” on July 2.
