FALLING OFF MAPS ‘HONEST’: “IN WINTER IT BECOMES DESPERATE, DESOLATE PLACE…”
‘A Seaside Town In Winter’ is the name of the forthcoming debut album by new Nottingham five-piece Falling Off Maps. Check out the their stunning track ‘Honest’.
Band’s singer/guitarist David Wright explains: “My parents live in a seaside town and in winter it becomes desperate, desolate place.
In summer it’s thriving but out of season when winter arrives and the tourists flee, businesses can’t survive and everything just stops. That image seemed to inspire the birth of the music and the way in which it evolved from there.” The album’s title set the tone for Falling Off Maps’ haunted sound. ‘A Seaside Town In Winter’ is bleak, yes, but ultimately it is uplifting too. Highs can’t exist without lows and vice versa…
‘Honest’ is released 12th August through Square Peg Round Hole Recordings.
Falling Off Maps are: Dave Wright (vocals / guitar), Dane Prewett (bass / electronics), Joe Watts (guitar), Tom Harrison (piano), Jay Wright (drums).
