At South Side High School on Long Island, seniors renamed their friends’ freshman doppelgangers by taking the senior’s name and prefixing it with “fake”. For example, Dan had a similar face to varsity wrestler Frank, so Dan's name became “Fake Frank”. Anytime Real Frank's friends caught Dan in the halls between classes, they’d yell out, “Fake Frank!”. But he took it in stride and owned it. In fact, Dan used Fake Frank as a placeholder band name when starting a musical project with the demos he accumulated from middle school.
Fake Frank's new single "I Don't Believe It's True", is an indie rock break up song with an odd-metered, swung verse and anthemic chorus. Moreover, the band live tracked it with retro tech!
