“Five Minutes With” Local Toronto Band Fake Crush

Fake Crush is a new project headed up by Matthew O’Halloran and Marco DiFelice out of Toronto, Canada. While both Matthew and Marco dabble in film/TV score (“The New Romantic”) and music supervision (Orphan Black), they started out in the dirty venues of Toronto.

Their new single “High Top Kicks” is the first in a long list of future collaborations already recorded with various artists. It’s a nostalgic, psychedelic surf rock track that’s been paired with an equally vintage visual.
