San Francisco’s The New Up trailer forthcoming new album Tiny Mirrors produced with Jack Frost (Antarctica/BlackRock) on 2/3, their new track ‘Falling From The Sky’ with Pancakes & Whiskey.
Highlighted by a driving base line and nifty growling guitars, the track is about finding strength during difficult times. Said to be “intensely introspective, raw in emotion, and cinematic in scope.”
‘Falling From The Sky’ is electronic indie with more authentic ever-so-lightly too polished, these days to be more more palliative is not too much of a diversion. Just blame aspiration fuelled, cattle-fed so called talent shows with more vocal EQ to cover a blemish or three. For someone reason I prefer when out of frustration the guitar just smacked ala ‘Creep’ by Radiohead or Bowie’s pause on ‘Heroes’ chorus, as The New UP, undoubtly do care about notion and technique, in different ways. It’s just too much sheen perhaps, to an otherwise solid single which despite reservation, should go down a treat.
The New Up get it right most of the time, with impassioned ‘Falling From The Sky’ fair too have something to look forward too in 2017. 7.7/10
