Faux Canada – “Projector”

San Fran indie-poppers Faux Canada sent over the peppy “Projector” and we’ve been hooked ever since.

Sundownchasing (aka Batavian singer/songwriter Anthony Del Plato) announced late last year that he would be “shaking off the rust” by releasing one song per month for the entirety of 2018.
