If you've ever been curious how local indie rock four-piece Fake Your Own Death got its name, visit its Facebook page and hear "Mouth to Speak." During the song's big chorus, guitarist and vocalist Terry Ashkinos issues a pensive yet grandiose statement that's characteristic of his lyrical style: "Open my mouth to speak/But it's old technology/Fake your own death/Watch it on TV." While the band's sound sports a melodic-morose shimmer-and-fade vibe reminiscent of Interpol, Ashkinos' gradually deepening voice takes cues from not only Paul Banks but the Hold Steady's Craig Finn and (to a lesser extent) Robert Smith. Though the guys aren't musical neophytes (Ashkinos notably served in the long-running Elephone), this project is only a year or two old. With time, Fake Your Own Death may eventually become as cool as its moniker.
