Australian Americana/folk duo Falls have announced the independent release of their new EP Bodega Rose on October 25.
Inspired by their time spent on the road, Bodega Rose features five stunning new tracks that explore the emotional struggle of chasing a dream while craving a place to call home. The first track “On Attack” released today, showcasing the duo’s compelling songwriting and charming vocal harmonies.
Simon Rudston-Brown and Melinda Kirwin formed Falls after meeting at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, before eventually moving together to Los Angeles and signing with Verve in 2015. Their debut full-length album Omaha released to widespread acclaim from press and fans alike, with the breakout track “When We Were Young” garnering over 11 million Spotify streams to date.
Over the last four years, Falls has moved to New York City and continued to build a solid following in the US and abroad. The band has toured with artists including Of Monsters and Men, Iron and Wine, Passenger and The Lumineers, and performed everywhere from Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits to Sundance Film Festival.
Falls illustrates their period of both personal and artistic growth on Bodega Rose, with authentic, vulnerable confessions that offer a sense of comfort in their conviction.
The pair’s fierce musical partnership has morphed out of a turbulent romantic relationship, allowing them to write about the realities of life, love and growth with an unflinching honesty. The new EP was produced by Grammy award-winner Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket, Manchester Orchestra, Alanis Morissette) and recorded at the iconic Sunset Sound Recorders in Los Angeles.
