Evocative Melbourne folksters, Forest Falls have announced the release of their new single, Hounds (out April 6), as well as their sophomore EP of the same name, set for release on May 1.
Recorded and produced alongside five-time ARIA award winning producer, Wayne Connolly (Paul Dempsey, Josh Pyke and Cloud Control) at Alberts Studio in Sydney, lead single Hounds is driven by exquisite five-part harmonies and transformative, liberating saxophone solos. “The lyrics to Hounds were written in a huff,” explains lead vocalist Jon O’Neill. “A hound can be unpredictable; it can be your best friend or bear its teeth, and I suppose I was bearing mine at the time.”
Filmed in Melbourne by An Architect Photographed My Undies (Vance Joy, Pierce Brothers, Oscar Key Sung), the clip for Hounds is open to interpretation, following the story of a pair of passionate lovers, complemented by the song’s lyrics, their two voices ricochet off each other in the heat of the moment. By weaving the release of sky lanterns in to the narrative, the clip touches on themes of igniting, letting go, reigniting and perhaps just burning out. “We loved the aesthetic and the metaphor of releasing the sky lanterns and the fact that there isn’t a right answer to the true meaning behind the clip,” says O’Neill.
Also recorded and produced by the legendary Wayne Connolly, the Hounds EP touches on the themes of love, relationships, compromise, confusion and lust. “All these things are worth capturing and singing about and all different kinds of emotion can be harnessed and used as motivation or inspiration in songwriting,” says O’Neill. Overflowing with the rich, lush sounds they’re best known for, this cohesive release is like a welcome visit from a long lost friend, nostalgic, heartfelt and authentic. Unafraid to bite the bullet and explore new genres, O’Neill explains, “We’ve been writing new stuff and falling in love with other instruments and sounds and have realised there’s nothing standing in our way.”
With a well-rounded show that will surprise and entertain, fans can expect thrilling five-part harmonies, captivating chants, memorable hooks and a performance bursting with integrity and heart that will leave you wanting more.
