New Single 'Closer'

From South African

Rock Super Group

'Fear Of Falling'

Hot on the heels of their latest single ‘All My Time’, South African Rock Super Group Fear Of Falling is back with ‘Closer’, their rendition of the classic by American Rockers Kings of Leon.

 

Fear Of Falling Vocalist Ross Harding shares that “Kings Of Leon are one of my favourite bands, and the song has always hit home really intensely. Something about the marriage of ghostly lyrics, the droning chord progression and melodic emotion of that song just works. It’s a genius piece in my opinion”

 

Produced by Spencer Harvey, all synths, sounds, and effects were created from scratch in studio, with Spencer’s sometimes strange techniques of blowing wind into the pickups of guitars, the sounds created speak to the ghostly lyrics and intensity. Working on the song, Harvey notes, “I just wanted to create a banger!”

 

Fear Of Falling are incredibly grateful to the time, effort, and artistry that Spencer Harvey put into the track, and the result is this phenomenal mix of dark and light, as the song makes its way through the anti-chorus elements, leaned on by its lyrics.

Fear Of Falling - Closer

Lyrics 'Closer'

 

Stranded in this spooky town

Stop lights are swaying and the phone lines are down

Floor is crackling cold

She took my heart, I think she took my soul

With the moon I run

Far from the carnage of the fiery sun

 

Driven by the strangle of vein

Showing no mercy, I'd do it again

Open up your eyes

You keep on crying, baby, I'll bleed you dry

Skies are blinking at me

I see a storm bubbling up from the sea

 

And it's coming closer

And it's coming closer

 

You who shimmy shook my bone

Leaving me stranded all in love on my own

Do you think of me?

Where am I now? Baby, where do I sleep?

Feels so good, but I'm old

Two thousand years of chasing taking its toll

 

And it's coming closer

And it's coming closer

And it's coming closer

And it's coming closer
