Double-A side 7-inch “Falling / Standing,” to be released in that most physical of forms on July 7th, 2017.
Even though dream pop duo Fawns of Love only just released their debut album, Who Cares About Tomorrow, earlier this year, the husband and wife team are back with another slice of ethereal eeriness.
The track is four minutes of chiming Cure-ish guitars, echoing drums, and singer Jenny Andreotti’s haunting and ghost-like vocals. This is not quite dreampop, rather hauntpop.
“We recorded ‘Falling’ and ‘Standing’ in our apartment during our spring break from teaching,” Joseph Andreotti explains. “We used a vintage reel-to-reel, Korg MS-20 synthesizer, Korg SQ-1, and Electro-Harmonix analog guitar pedals alongside Logic. A Warren Ellis signature Eastwood Tenor Guitar was used as was a Fender Jaguar bass guitar.”
“‘Falling’ is about a retired bachelor who meets a younger woman,” Jenny says. “He quickly decides to go on a long distance vacation with her and is so exited that he literally tells everyone he knows. The relationship immediately blows up in his face and inevitably there is a long awkward plane ride home.”
