The song is based on the idea of “pretending until you do it,” or, in Bag’s own words, “Sometimes in life, pretending in a place where you aren’t stressed out is. the best you can do. “
“I love disco and the drama it embodies, so it just felt natural that such a painfully personal song be glamorized into a frenzy of dance rhythm,” he says.
The sister of the Melbourne-based musician, Ollie Olivia, joins him on the track – his voice is the perfect accompaniment to evoke the shimmering and evocative vibe of the party scene of the late 70s.
While Bag often finds himself creating disco-style tracks – something he inherited from his former father “Disk Jockey” – “Fake It To A Place” effortlessly applies a more modern techno rhythm to his production, melting the song in 2021.
The accompanying visualizer for the track evokes a very Miami ambiance, heavily inspired by clubhouse aesthetics, fast cars and sequined dresses – all perfectly tailored to match the melodic, groovy tone of the track.
Already broadcast on triple j the very week of its release, “Fake It To A Place” is sure to resonate with audiences of all ages, whether for the love of disco or for the deeper meaning of lyrics.
Either way, Mitch Bag is absolutely one to watch.
