Hoax's New Single, "Unamerican Dream"

Hoax's New Single, "Unamerican Dream"

Long Island natives Hoax, has released their latest single, “Unamerican Dream,” an immigrant's vision of America in indie pop fashion. Michael Raj and Frantz Caesar are both first-generation immigrants and chose to centered the single's focus around an immigrant father who, at the end of his life, comes to terms with his shortcomings. Michael and Frantz wanted to pay tribute to the topic by donating 50% of the proceeds to KIND, an organization that aims to help immigrant children find safety and protection in the States.

The song's soundscape, filled with clean lead synths, guitars, and a tidy beat, blends seamlessly with lead singer Michael Raj’s emphatic vocals, and is in part reminiscent of the so-called sophisti-pop of the late '80s that saw its peak in bands like Prefab Sprout and and The Style Council, among others. Since releasing their first EP, The Truth and Other Lies in 2017, Hoax has been unloading previews of their musical talent at a promising rate.
