Falaises - transient "Boy" has dangerous edges



























Paris based Falaises offer their first single Boy from their debut EP "They Are Here" due out in October (2018).  Mixed by the amazing Stephane Briat (Air, Depeche Mode) the track with it's runaway arpeggios and runaway beat moves even when the song stands still. In these movements of static silence the track feels heavy and embracing until Alice's "hey!" that sends the song reeling as if it is running towards something and from something. The track is mysterious sounding too feeling transient but with dangerous edges but other times has a dizzy jubilant tone as well.  Maybe it is running towards a savior.
