The Aces have no time for “Fake Nice.”
It’s been a little over a year since the fierce group of talented ladies – Cristal Ramirez, Katie Henderson, McKenna Petty, and Alisa Ramirez – first stole our hearts with their impressive debut “Stuck,” which was later followed by their EP I Don’t Like Being Honest, including gems like “Physical” (one of 2017’s Top Best Singles) – The Aces stay on their A-game!
Now, the all-female pop-rock quartet are ready to step things up a notch. Their just announced debut album, When My Heart Felt Volcanic, is set to be released on April 6th, and “Fake Nice” is our first taste of what’s to come from the upcoming full-length project.
Like much of their work, “Fake Nice” is one hell of a satisfying, genre-blurring swirl of warm beats, disco bass plucks, crashing drums and almighty, echoing vocals. “Oh You know how to win them over but not this time (oh, she’s so fake)/ And if they ask, I’ll be honest, say what’s on my mind (Oh, she’s so fake) / Oh she’s so fake nice/ You had me sympathizing but oh you’re so fake nice,” they chant across the sunny hook.
“Fake Nice” sounds fresh and nostalgic all at once, fitting into today’s indie-pop soundscape pretty effortlessly, just with a little added grouch for good measure.
“‘Fake Nice‘ is a favorite off the album and representative of a funkier side of our sound,” The Aces said in a statement. “We wrote it about being from a smaller town and experiencing living in a big city for the first time while trying to navigate all the new personalities that come along with that.”
