Single Review: Into•The•Deep's 'Fall'
Following the release of their debut EP this February, Into•The•Deep are already back and unleashing more of their unapologetic alt rock into the world.
The track descends into an exciting chaos of fast paced drums, a plethora of intense riffs and booming bass, working together tremendously in solidifying the backbone of the song behind vocals.
Having listened to Into•The•Deep’s previous EP 'Steal the Light', 'Fall' sounds like a great evolution of a band who are just getting truly into their groove. Though it’s a song presumably with an intentionally aggressive undertone to it, the way in which it’s written has given it a undeniably authentic and anthemic feel, making it quite difficult not to bop along when you’re listening.
Think along the lines of Foo Fighters; angry without feeling overbearing or intimidating, but enough to make you feel something.
The mix on the record demonstrates each part of what makes this song good in equal and substantial measure.
However, if I were to criticize anything about 'Fall', it’d have to be the fact that I personally couldn’t entirely make out exactly what the lyrics are, particularly toward the end.
It’s a bit of a shame as they’re being performed with such conviction and the melody as a standalone is strong enough to get stuck in your head for hours.
Albeit their latest endeavour 'Fall' is a short one, coming in under the three minute mark, but the band waste absolutely no time and I think the fact it’s quite a short track actually works in Into•The•Deep’s favour on this occasion. The more manageable length keeps the structure from becoming repetitive and allows the track to keep up the level of intensity without becoming tedious.
And, after all, if you’ve managed to make the point you set out to make in 2:58, why drag it out any longer?
Into•The•Deep celebrate their new release at the O2 Academy2 on Saturday 29th September, so if you like what you hear be sure to grab a ticket. I feel like these guys are just getting started, and I’m excited for what’s to come from them.
