Fallings - I Saw Ghosts
If there's one thing us Irish seem to be excelling at in recent times, it's a knack for what I'd like to call epic folk, as demonstrated by bands like PØRTS in the north and In Their Thousands in the south. Now we've got another name to add to that list, in the form of Kerry based 4-piece Fallings. The track that has really got us excited is the wonderful "I Saw Ghosts", which we imagine will similarly excite fans of the aforementioned bands. The arrangement of the song starts off incredibly sparse, before building up in a crescendo into a thunderous, anthemic wall of noise. It does remind us a little bit of "Heaven" by Bryan Adams in parts, but we won't hold that against them.
The band's debut E.P, "Hide. Fight. Fall. Unite", is due to be released soon.
