Scott & Charlene’s Wedding already issued one lo-fi love letter packed with New York references this year (see “Two Weeks,” from the EP of the same name), and now Melbourne-raised, NYC-based singer and songwriter Craig Dermody has dropped another. “Fakin’ NYC” captures the feeling that comes with moving to a new city and celebrates it with a sing-along slacker anthem that proves Dermody is more than a little familiar with Pavement. “I tell everyone I’m fine,” Dermody sings, before admitting, “I’ll let you in on a secret of mine / I don’t know what I’m doing any of the time.” Thankfully, the track has found a permanent home on Scott & Charlene’s Wedding’s upcoming full-length, Any Port In a Storm, due July 22 via Fire Records.
