False Advertising



If you've been following Ralph these last three years you'll know he's been a fan of Scottish band Vukovi as they've slowly but surely pushed their way to the forefront of the UK Indie scene. 

Well Ralph's tipping Manchester band False Advertising who have a similar feel to do exactly the same as they release their eponymous debut album. 





It's brash, grungy, in your face, powerful, angsty and well crafted. From the first jangly chords of Breaker to the climax of the burgeoning Something Better they bring a power and intensity to the listener.

Whilst Jen's on-stage presence may not match the intensity of Vukovi's Janine Shilstone (few can) her vocal is no less impressive and just as addictive.

She's ably backed by the musicality of her cohorts especially on the pacy Dozer which is being released by False Advertising as a single this week.










Describing themselves as 'raw, gritty, sassy and ambitious', False Advertising release their self-titled debut on the 4th of September. They describe it as - 'an audaciously loud album loaded with dirty riffs, oozing grunge from every pore and crackling with an electrifying fuzz primed to set your hair on end'.





Having spent years behind the scenes working with a rich array of talent from the Northwest and beyond, the band have been absorbing the industry from the inside, biding their time and standing poised ready to strike the city with a very different type of rock’n’roll than it has become accustomed to.


At False Advertising’s core runs an integral songwriting relationship between vocalists Jen Hingley and Chris Warr that sparks the band’s creativity and surges their will power. Friends for years, the pair bonded through playing separately, then together on Manchester’s open mic circuit. 


Jen found her songwriting confidence in mid 2013, which marked the start of what would eventually become False Advertising. Fuzzy demos recorded in her studio flat sent back and forth to Chris began to establish a creative partnership fuelling a prolific output from both.

Alternating guitar and drumming duties and switching their line-up on a song-by-song basis, the duality of Hingley and Warr breeds a dynamic versatility that pronounces itself in the vibrant songcraft on the album from its bristling beginnings to its seismic finale.





Over the years, the pair have garnered experience from all facets of the industry they wish to conquer. Warr as a producer (The Orielles), Hingley as a digital designer (Royal Blood, Rolling Stones, The Clash). The fusion of this creative experience has provided False Advertising with enviable DIY credentials.
