After the release of their new album, 'Deep Space', last week, Cheap Fakes are not standing still ahead of their tour with the release of a new video, 'I Got Nothing', which scenestr has the exclusive premiere today.
The new album was produced and recorded on the Gold Coast, in Love Street Studio, by the band's lead guitarist, Scotty French. "We are absolutely ecstatic [about the album's release]," Cheap Fake's frontman, Hayden Andrews says.
"It's been a long process with this one, just because we had the freedom to take as long as we wanted to record.
"With this one, we used different drum kits, two different studios, different set-ups and we would record in different rooms. It was a really organic process this time."
'I Got Nothing' features a hypnotic groove that slowly builds into a crescendo of funky brass howls, soothing guitar licks and cymbal rumbles.

Ahead of a run of dates, Hayden says fans can expect "an intense set with lots of big moments that are really full and then a lot of breakdown moments.
"People are normally ready to party at our shows. It's always been upbeat and heavy sort of music. It's normally a good release for people to have a bit of a boogie and good time with their mates."
