Fake Stacys - Sound In The Signals Interview

Brennan Rhodes

I recently had the opportunity to interview Fake Stacys. We discussed how they formed the band and wrote their new EP, ‘Another Kid In America’ during quarantine, a favorite lyrical moment from the EP, plans for 2022, and more. Check it out below.

Can you tell me how you got together and formed the band for those who may be unfamiliar? How did you initially become interested in music? 

Me and James have worked together on several of his other projects. We met through a mutual friend years ago. We just made a few songs over quarantine that we liked and then just kept going. It felt really natural. I think we both just kinda grew up loving music...

Your new EP ‘Another Kid In America’ just came out. Can you tell me about the writing and recording process for the EP? 

We wrote it over quarantine... with really nothing else to do. Kinda sat around and drank a little and worked it out. I have a studio in LA that we made the EP at. We just wanted it to feel like a couple idiots (us) got in and played like a real band would. We didn’t quantize anything or really even think about that kinda stuff. Just got in and played and it was done! It was really fun to look at things that way.

What was the easiest song to write for the EP and which song was the most challenging?

James can literally spit out a great song in like 4 minutes. So we didn’t have much trouble with any of them. We do have a song we’ve been working on forever that we can’t seem to figure out what the chorus is... maybe we’ll get to hear it someday!

Do you have a favorite lyrical or musical moment from the EP?

I love the “restaurant by the sea” line in America. The back story to that song is hilarious... it’s basically James getting drunk and making a total asshole out of himself at a restaurant by the sea. Ha pretty great!

What’s coming up for the band in 2022? 

We’re not really sure... hopefully play some great shows. Maybe tour a little? We’re almost finished with our record so we’ll definitely be putting that out into the world. Hopefully people like it!

Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions. Do you have anything else that you would like to add? 

Thanks for having us!
