NEWS: Reversing Falls releases self-titled debut on April 23

Press release provided by Pigeon Row

Reversing Falls releases their self-titled debut album on Tuesday, April 23. The album is built on the philosophy that hooks need hooks to back them up. With songs that rarely clock in longer than 4:20, this is an ironclad exercise in modern indie rock.

Wearing their influences on their sleeves, the Montreal three-piece comprised of Tyler Crawford (vocals, guitar), Charlie Neufeld (lead rhythm guitar) and Jesse Ash (bass) might be the best thing to happen to Canadian rock since the halcyon days of Sloan and Matthew Good. For the album they’ve also recruited drummer Jamie Thompson, a powerful player formerly of The Unicorns, who adds a nervy energy to tracks like “Is Anybody Listening?” and “Long Time Coming.
Partially recorded at Crawford’s own IRL Recording and at various churches and apartments throughout Montreal, Reversing Falls found co-producer Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre) to fill out their emotive songs about the futility of human relationships (“Is This Thing On?”) and hometown ennui (“Curse This Place”). If that wasn’t enough, the legendary Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade, Godspeed! You Black Emperor) mixed the album at Hotel2Tango.
Reversing Falls’ combustible pop songs may be two and a half minutes long, but they all comment incisively about our generation’s self-conscious concerns. “Everyone Everyone Everyone” is a love song about falling for someone terrible. “Shitty Birthday” describes another disappointing milestone that feels the opposite of how it should mean. On the album’s gorgeous closer, “It Happens All The Time, Reversing Falls’ hooky insouciance turns to bleak introspection as Crawford sings, “I don’t even know anymore, I knew it when I was younger but now it’s gone.”
