Head Fake keep an air of mystery around them. The musicians each bring a different genre background to the music they make, and the result is tracks with lush soundscapes, hooks for days, and a sense of nostalgia. “Sucker For Your Ways” is ripe with 80s layering and contemporary hooks. It’s as bright as it is dangerous, leaving listeners with the title lingering and the tune all around.
“Sucker for Your Ways” begins with a strong guitar riff that explodes into horns that teeter against the celebratory. Meanwhile, lyrics come in with a darkness. There is longing in this love, something with edges lurking under the surface. The vocals reverberate as the melodies swirl. All of this is held together by a sturdy bass-line.
The accompanying clip embraces the music through dance. Two people begin in the bedroom with a dance that moves between intimacy and dominance. This relationship continues as they go about their day, with one dancer even showcasing frustration through movement as his partner leaves. This is a relationship with synchronicity, though that doesn’t always mean unity. Through the shifts, rhythms, and pulses of the song, the dancers find ways to explore.
