Faux Real (FR/UK)

In the spring of 2018, Franco-American brothers Elliott and Virgile Arndt invoked the union of their inner gene genies and gave birth to Faux Real. As they conceived it, Faux Real combines elements of post-punk, glam rock, and contemporary R&B with a unique sense of humor, boy band tropes, and a forward-thinking approach to modern pop culture.

Far before releasing any music, Faux Real began performing live, wooing half-confused, half-amused crowds one unconventional venue at a time. Building on a lifetime of inside jokes and shared mp3 libraries, the Arndt brothers created a signature show that simultaneously fetishizes, destroys, and re-invents their kinship through compelling choreography, playfully exploring the boundaries of duality, ridicule, and sexuality.

Why Faux Real?

“We became aware of Faux Real through our francophone partners and festivals last year. At the beginning of this year (2021), the band thrilled us with a brilliant performance at Eurosonic. We are very happy that we were able to book the band for our own c/o pop production. It’s always an experience. The good mixture of excellent songs, a lot of humour and brilliant dance performances. We can’t wait to see this band on big stages throughout Europe! That will definitely be our highlight in the next few years!”
