Cheekface are back with a new single called ‘The Fringe’. It follows the Los Angeles trio’s 2022 album Too Much to Ask, and you can check it out below.
Speaking about the origins of the song, singer Greg Katz explained in a statement: “Me and Mandy were trying to wrestle with the feeling that success in your career or field kind of feels like selling out, even if you don’t think you’re knowingly capitulating to the demands of later capitalism. Like, work, or art, or whatever, feels somehow more authentic, or just better, if other people don’t like it, or if you’re failing. And maybe it feels like a badge of honor to just reject success altogether, and because of that, there’s maybe an impulse to self-sabotage, like, to do things on purpose that you know will not succeed. Also this song has a nice guitar solo in my opinion, although I am biased, because I played it.”
