New music: The Short Fall

The Short Fall - brothers Angelo and Ryan Conway - have dropped a new single, Under the Clouds.

Under the Clouds is reminiscent of a vague unrequited love story, still with a dark underlying tone twisted within; inspired by The Police’s Every Breath You Take, yet their lyrical ambiguity leaves it up to you to form a meaning of your own from the single,” the official release notes say.

The song was originally written for their first EP more than four years ago, but didn’t make the final release.

The brothers produced this version in Byron Bay with ARIA Award winning producer Jordan Power. It was their first studio work since the passing of their long-time collaborator, friend and producer Anthony Lycenko last year.

“I don’t think we’d stopped to process just how much Anthony’s death had affected us until we were driving to Byron Bay,” Angelo says.

“For us it was dipping our toe back in the water after quite a long time away from the studio.

“The experience was quite cathartic; in a way, a piece of Anthony is in this song, as we’d worked on it with him all those years ago when we originally wrote it… so it͛s sort of come full circle.”
