2020, 12″ LP, The State51 Conspiracy. Orange vinyl.

Fake Laugh first emerged in 2013 as a side-project to Khan’s main band at the time, eventually becoming his primary focus of creativity. Fake Laugh’s self-titled debut full-length arrived in 2017 as the delicate accumulation of years of experimentation. The album is a vivid rummage through the worlds of love, confusion and self-questioning.

On Dining Alone Khan takes a bolder, more adventurous approach to assembling an album. Liberated by the absence of a strict tracklist, recording sessions with producer, Louis Milburn, took on a more improvised feel and allowed the pair to stretch out the Fake Laugh sound. The fruits of this process are clear, with the melancholic serenity of interludes Plätze and title track, Dining Alone, blending seamlessly with the carefree jangle powerpop of If You Don’t Wanna Know and the languid armchair groove of Exotic Bird.
