Percy Falls - Miss You
Percy Falls provide a gorgeous melody and a folk-inspired requiem for the lost magic of yesterday, even as they inspire new possibilities for tomorrow.
This review was originally published in June of 2018.
The massive sound of that cello is right up front, bringing you to attention; while the vocal holds you in it's presence, so inviting, the chopped-up drum groove draws circles in the ground. And finally the duet breaks through the clouds and we see the sky.
We return to the guitar, the folk-bed of fast fingers, and the lyrics feel like a message about the essence of life, and how to start over:
“Because we don’t know who we are
who’s gonna shake us down
so we’ll sell this beat-up car
we’ve run it into the ground”— Percy Falls
Percy Falls, with their new single Miss You, provide a gorgeous melody and a folk-inspired requiem for the lost magic of yesterday, even as they inspire new possibilities for tomorrow.
