The Make Believes, also known as Nick Lightbearer & the Make Believes are an in-universe boy band in We Happy Few.
Outside of that, the name is given to the primary makers of much of the game's unique music.
Compulsion Games and the audio division of Signal Space Lab collaborated on bringing together some of Canada's most prominent names in the Montreal music scene to create The Make Believes.

During recording, around late 2015 to April 2016, they kept to an analogue sound, along with vintage pre-amps and instruments. The lyric were created after being informed of the game world and the people inhabiting it.
The band created 10-12 tracks, though only 7 can be heard in the final game. There's an 8th song that can only be heard in the launch trailer, called "I Wanna Stay the Same".
