Another chance meeting of musicians results in an amazing collaboration. This story seems to be more and more common in the independent music industry. I am a firm believer that there is a Musical Fate out there that leads artists to other artists that will complement each other to create something sonically pleasing. Our latest discovery of this kind of magic is Temperature Falls.
Hailing from Oslo, Norway, the trip-hop/alternative rock duo is comprised of vocalist/lyricist Camilla and multi-instrumentalist Ian J. Ward. A chance meeting at a co-worker’s party introduced the two. They dove into the studio and found that thier own unique styles combined to form something truly special. Temperature Falls was born.
Thier sound is an amalgamation of spacy atmospheric layers merged with alternative rock energy and a vocal style that is elegant yet powerful. Temperature Falls claims influences from a varied soundplate including Bjork, KRS-One, Pearl Jam, and Sigrid.
After a self-titled debut album in early 2019, Temperature Falls is back with the new single “Zuzu’s Petals” from an upcoming EP early in 2020. The interesting opening sounds of the track prepare the listener’s mind for a new experience. The smooth beat soothes as the vocals crash in a sultry way. This morphing of styles grabs attention while offering a relaxed vibe. The song creeps by with a feel of the music washing over you and burying you in a warm blanket peeking outside for what comes next. It ends suddenly leaving us all wanting more.
Temperature Falls is obviously an act to keep an eye and ear out for in the new year. Follow the music and story for yourself on their WEBSITE.
