A feeling of anticipation, excitement, and hope
On ‘Into You’, Alta Falls says, “The song is about the coming together of two unlikely misfits. It’s describing the other-worldly feeling at the start of a relationship where your entire universe closes in and becomes only about that one person. There’s a feeling of anticipation, excitement, and hope, but also a certain level of fear — maybe they don’t feel the same way?“
Melodic hooks, soaring harmonies, and vintage 80s synth and guitar vibes are the defining features of Alta Falls, a Brisbane-based indie alternative outfit formed during the onset of COVID-19.
After spending much of 2020’s lockdown together, Alta Falls’ members took a deep dive exploring the social and global landscapes brought to light by the pandemic.
April 2021 introduced Alta Falls’ debut single, ‘Take Me On Down’, which was met with excellent reception. Triple j’s Dave Ruby Howe described it as, “Spring loaded indie pop with a neon heartbeat.”
The Brisbane duo are now two from two after backing up their debut single with their new track ‘Into You’.
‘Into You’ marries ominous 80s synth-pop vibes with the delectably menacing percussion that underpins the song. The vocals bring the true intention of the song to the surface – taking it from something that would fit perfectly on a ‘Stranger Things’ soundtrack, to a scrumptious indie-pop bop.
