Waking up, Staying down, overwhelmed by facts and fate. With cavernous eyes fed on unease, we have a vibrant hunger – to shape the unpredictable, to master the inevitable. And here it is, where they infect and overwhelm us like a virus, they consume us like the plague: EXPECTATIONS.
"Haunting. Stifling. Wired." Named after a man-made construct to capture or control, Falle have been fueling anticipation since summer 2018, and stretch from the flourishing Vienna/Graz tape-head scene as a collaboration between Tina Bauer, Markus Gönitzer and Peter Lazarus. United by a firm lo-fi mindset and a joint vein for the grim and murky, they lurk in the substantial negative space between catchy ‘80s-esque Bat Cave and a barren basement wallpapered with primal Units posters, early Holograms & Frustration or the likes. Driven by stubborn drum strokes, their biting synth patterns and bleak bass lines close around blunt, determined chants of introspection. Monotony? Repetition? Insistence! Turns out, we 're lured into a compelling body-gripper between grave post-punk dramatics and brittle punk temperament. Take the bait!
I had this in my wishlist, but then erased it...stumbled across it again and bought it, wondering why I didn’t purchase it in the first place?!
As “huffersrights82” so adequate wrote, AUS are beaming me to this long gone Berlin with their wavy Post-Punk. I imagine the Band in an old dirty Bunker, recording this Demo, that has it’s very own charm and I am totally looking forward to a full-length follow up!!! PreSha
Featured this album on the seventh issue of RULE of THREE (http://bit.ly/RULEofTHREEbc). Rites and Rituals is an instant classic paying respect to 80's post-punk bands from Chameleons to Gene Loves Jezebel with a modern twist and stand-out vocals. Gallows Hill is a perfect mix of 80's nostalgia, modern post-punk and - dare I say it - pop. Christian Schaefer
Aside from the beautifully clear vocals and a minimal post-punk bass/guitar/drums/synths style, the lyrics are poignant reminders of our own internal struggles. The title track is absolutely lovely and has quickly become a deeply meaningful and personally significant addition to my regular rotation. Azy
