Alter The Press! Presents: Fake Obsession

After going through a few line-up changes Telford's Fake Obsession are now emerging as a promising female-fronted straight up rock band. Having recently appeared on the Red Bull Bedroom Jam, as well as receiving local radio airplay, the band's honest approach and style has seen the four-piece's appeal grown in the past few months.

Despite being fronted by Nay Barwick, Fake Obsession do their best to be compared to the likes of Paramore and take a more classic rock approach, classing bands like Bon Jovi as influences. Nevertheless their mix of hard rock and catchy choruses bring about a decent blend of pop-rock, that widens the bands appeal.

For Fans Of: Bon Jovi and Paramore.
