The End of America's cover of The Isley Brothers' Footsteps in the Dark is part of a compilation of covers of Motown classics brought to you by The Falcon Program, a network of college A&R scouts and student-run record labels.
Through a partnership with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and Reservoir Media, college music-business students scouted independent artists to re-imagine iconic Motown songs, which releases today and will be pitched for film and TV licensing. This indie-rock version of The Isley Brothers' classic brings modern production magic to a timeless moment of self-realization, as a testament to the old truism that some things never change. A moment of reflection can reveal the simplest of truths: that what we were looking for was with us the whole time. Footsteps in the Dark, the latest from Philadelphia natives The End of America, joins a bustling folk-vibe with some delicious guitar-hooks and the reassurance that it is never too late to start going in the right direction.
Honey, now lets stop walkin' around
When there's love lost to be found
And you know I still care, I still care
What's the sense in goin' elsewhere?
The End of America (James Downes, Trevor Leonard and Brendon Thomas) consists of a group of friends who met on the road, after singing harmonies on each other’s songs while on tour as solo artists. This song is featured on our Roots Collection playlist.
