Covid Sucks: With so many awesome plans disrupted for ourselves, and indeed everyone last year.
We are eager to get into 2021 and pick up where we left off; whilst also adhering to (and encouraging others to do the same) all the safety guidelines recommended. We don't ever wish for anyone to be back in a place of such confusion and uncertainty.
We did manage to use the technologies on hand to bring you what we could in the form of some "live(ish)" videos. This involved each of us taking time to record and perform our parts in one take to what we had available to us in our own spaces of isolation. Back at Adam's studio he was able to put them together and give us something to share. It was a different experience, playing live on stage or simply jamming in a space is such a dynamic experience and whilst group energy, vibe, and performance feedback between us all is such an important part of a show - We all really enjoyed just playing our songs again, even if it was in isolation. If you haven't seen any of the videos yet, then check them out below and be sure to let us know your favourites!
Stay At Home Sessions 2020
Burning - StayAtHomeSessions EP 2
Released earlier this year, 2020. We wrote this in what now seems like a forgotten time. When Our beautiful country was in flames and we watched as our government seemingly turned a blind eye to much of the tragedy, with slow reactions and lack of support to local communities and our incredible, yet fragile wildlife and environment. Proceeds of sales and streams for this song are donated to Wildlife Victoria. Make a donation for the track (and the animals) at Bandcamp, or support us, and the cause by streaming and playlisting on your favourite service. Burning - Fake Sibling. - Recorded separately in isolation, all video/audio is a single take. Written by Dave Gillan, Adam Beath, Sophie Officer. Performed by Fake Sibling.

Bring Me Here - StayAtHomeSessions EP 1
This was our first ever single. Released in 2017. It's to this day still one of our favourites and we love performing it!! This year (as is for many creators out there), has taken away our most fundamental and loved aspects of being in this band. Live performance, we've cancelled shows and had to delay what was for us a major year of events and milestones. We can't be in the same room together, so we've done what we can to show you all that we're still here, and we still love performing!! Each of these videos (and accompanying audio) was recorded in our own isolation bubbles, each of them in one take. We are lucky enough to have our own recording spaces so capturing the audio in this way gave us the opportunity to get as close to what you'd hear if you came to see us live - Which will hopefully be soon!!! Please, "like, subscribe, hit that bell", and be sure to get notified when we upload more of these little "Live(ish)" 'Stay At Home Sessions'. We're ever grateful for your support, FS - Adam, Soph, Alex. Fake Sibling. Bring Me Here. Written by Adam Beath, Dave Gillan, Sophie Officer. Performed by Fake Sibling.

Lies - StayAtHomeSessions EP 3
The 3rd instalment of our Stay At Home Session videos. A bit of time before to go before we can all gather together and get to jam these out in the way they were intended. But we're returning to a new normal here in Victoria and look forward to getting back on the stage again soon!! Lies - Fake Sibling. - Recorded separately in isolation, all video/audio is a single take. Written by Dave Gillan, Adam Beath, Sophie Officer. Performed by Fake Sibling. Drums: Alex Gooding Acoustic Guitar: James Mackey Keys: Ben Dumas Guitar: Adam Beath Vocals: Sophie Officer
Lost and Found - StayAtHomeSessions Ep 4
Another 'Stay At Home Sessions Video'. The fourth instalment and probably one of our oldest songs. 'Lost and Found', written about relationships that have a zero-pressure, 'no strings' approach to things... Or do they? Is there such a thing? "Bound, but not tied down"? Can you really be Lost, and Found? Some words for thought... and music too, of course. :-) Lost and Found - Fake Sibling. - Recorded separately in isolation, all video/audio is a single take. Written by Dave Gillan, Adam Beath, Sophie Officer. Performed by Fake Sibling. Drums: Alex Gooding Bass: James Mackey Keys: Ben Dumas Guitar: Adam Beath Vocals: Sophie Officer
