Led by Hannah D'Amato, San Francisco-based Fake Fruit released their self titled debut earlier this year, a record full of winningly hooky indie rock that is informed by the classics but is also clearly very now. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can stream the whole album below. They've also just released a video for "Milkman," one of the album's standouts, which D'Amato says is "about noticing a relationship is far past its expiration date, and realizing that you’re the one that’s going to have to take care of it.” The video, directed by Spooky Orbison, plays off the more literal idea of a "Milkman" and you can watch that below.
We caught up with Hannah to find out about the inspirations behind Fake Fruit's debut album. "A lot of blood sweat and tears went into making this record, and even though I had to stop and start over so many times, I wouldn’t change anything about how it was made," Hannah tells us. "I had just landed myself in a city where I didn’t know anyone with a fresh heartbreak in tow. When I wrote the bulk of the record I felt like I was losing it, and I was just trying my best to keep my head above water. These are some of the things that helped me muscle through!"
