Faux Real


In the spring of 2018, the Franco-American visionary brothers, Elliott and Virgile Arndt, embarked on a creative journey that would give birth to something truly extraordinary: Faux Real. As if invoking the union of their inner gene genies, they forged a musical phenomenon that defied convention. Faux Realism emerged as a captivating fusion, melding the rebellious spirit of post-punk, the flamboyance of glam rock, and the sultry rhythms of contemporary R&B. Yet, it was more than just music; it was a whimsical odyssey through pop culture's uncharted territories, infused with a generous dose of humor, a touch of boy band mystique, and an unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries.

But Faux Real was not content with mere studio perfection. Long before they unleashed their sonic creations upon the world, they embarked on a bold and unconventional path. They ventured onto stages, both bewildering and beguiling audiences in an array of unique and unexpected venues. With each performance, they left half-confused, half-amused crowds in their wake, tantalizing their senses and defying expectations.

What set the Arndt brothers apart was their unbreakable bond, forged over a lifetime of shared inside jokes and countless hours pouring over their cherished mp3 libraries. With Faux Real, they harnessed this connection to create a signature show, a mesmerizing spectacle that simultaneously celebrated, deconstructed, and reinvented their kinship. Through intricate choreography and a playful exploration of duality, satire, and sensuality, they invited audiences into a realm where laughter and wonder intertwined with the pulsating beats of their music. In the world of Faux Real, boundaries were mere suggestions, and the journey was as exhilarating as the destination.
