Fake Laugh is the recording project of London based Berlin native Kamran Khan. Now 23, Kamran started writing songs at age 12 while living in Burgess Hill, West Sussex. After moving to London to study philosophy, he started experimenting with home recording. Early recordings were mostly covers of artists whose influence can still be heard in his sound today, such as The Beach Boys, Everly Brothers and The Beatles. After witnessing the emergence of bedroom producers, Kamran decided to adopt the DIY approach with his own songs. His initial aim was to write simple, melodic and carefree songs.
