Jana Falcon – Falling EP

April 23, 2016 in Singles

Jana Falcon Falling EP Smile For A WhileBerlin-based Smile For A While come with a four-track EP that won’t be to everyone’s taste, but that I rather like, so nyer.

Opener Contemplation Of Inadequacy is the track that’s most likely to be a stumbling block… tuff kicks plus M1-ish organs and Detroit-y strings are a winning combo but the female vocal does err a little to the poppy side. For me, though, it brings back memories of cheesy-but-fun Brummie bassline from a decade ago and makes me smile. Pretty much the same applies also to Falling (Again Boy); the main difference is Falling is a little faster.

Ne’er mind, though, cos the smoother Petria’s House with its plainitive “I miss your love” vocal is far less likely to upset the ‘credibility’ obsessed… particularly when it comes with a dark, sweaty Obsession Dub that could almost be a long-lost Adonis record! It’s this latter rub that’s really earning this EP its place here… but like I said, I quite like the other three as well.
