Blending the multitude of styles
Quick off the back of their successful debut single ‘Dry’, comes ‘Crush This World’ the latest earworm from Colin Doran (Hundred Reasons) and Jason Bowld’s (Bullet For My Valentine, Pitchshifter) rock studio project They Fell From The Sky.
They Fell From The Sky formed after Colin Doran (Hundred Reasons) and Jason Bowld (Bullet For My Valentine, Pitchshifter, Killing Joke) got together for Jason’s collaborative project ‘This Is Menace’. They then started writing with Dave Draper and completed the lineup with Lee Erinmez (Snuff) and Oly Edkins.
Once in the studio the band’s songwriting flourished and an album began to take shape, blending the multitude of styles each member brought to the table. The songs started to flow and the sound honed to make the unique songwriting juggernaut that is ‘They Fell From The Sky’.
From the get, Crush This World is electrifying. The track, an almost battle-like anthem, feels like an outburst of hope, built around rhythmic, garage-esque riffs, tight drums and propelled by its most distinctive asset: Colin’s voice; ranging from soft and nostalgic in places and downright shrieking in others.
Taken from their upcoming album, Crush This World is about how “most relationships have issues because of outside influences. The song is a romantic juggernaut telling the world to fuck off and let people just get on with being together”, explains lyricist Colin Doran.
The track is produced by the band’s guitarist Dave Draper, who’s best known for his work with The Wildhearts, The Professionals and Kerbdog.
Designed with the song’s theme in mind, an anime-style music video created by AYAKASHI アヤカシ depicting an end-of-world style fight scene will be released alongside the single.
