Arriving from North London audiovisual collective Fake Turins turn their focus on their newest single ‘Legs’ to express the horror of modern life’s normalcy through a punk-disco lens. You get a clear view of Fake Turins inspiration from the likes of James Chance and LCD Soundsystem while at the same time trying to form and develop their own identity.
‘Legs’ is about the motion we find in the world around us despite the stasis bought by the struggles of mental health. It will be followed by the first episode of 'Fake TV', a new venture into the realms of Televisual Communication which offers context to the collective.
One thing I strongly dislike about certain songs is when the music is far too slow and leads to the tempo and layers of the track losing themselves along the way, and I hate to say it but Fake Turins are a perfect example of this personal peeve here.
‘Legs’ is just a very repetitive piece of music that could force an insomniac into a massive coma, if it wasn’t for the wonderfully descriptive lyrics that I found to be the most redeeming feature. For me this just came across as a bit bland which is saddening because they are such talented people.
