About the Artist: This is Fallsstart’s latest EP entitled Our Summer released in 2012. In their own words: “We were going for something very fast paced and very energetic, an album that could stand on its own two feet without rehashing something that had already been done. And I think we accomplished that.” Band members include Davey, Adrian, Jaron.
Review: Tour Summer is one release that certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is one trio that brings to the table effective songwriting via a highly marketable musical delivery and at times explosive. This meshed with a one in a million Alt-Rock sound and effective visuals and vocals makes for a very effective combination no doubt. Fallsstart is just a breath away from College-Indie-Pop or even Punk but skillfully and methodically never crosses the line into either realm. All songs are wonderfully simple but masterful in their overall arrangements. Music reminded me of a cross between Saosin, Story of the Year, Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard, Panic At The Disco, This EP is quite entertaining overall with an amazing vocal front of Davey who is a musical triple threat in my mind. This is a world class Rock Trio. Davey has an amazing voice and the rest of the band has likeable appeal (visually and vocally). The lyrical content is straight from the heart and offers a very strong and confident male perspective and spirit. This doesn’t mean many females won’t love Fallsstart as well. All song do exactly what they are meant to do via well-crafted movements and top tiered musicianship. The overall production value is superb with a crystal clear sound quality.

Conclusion: Fallsstart has proven herself again with this latest release. They are clearly an up and coming talent around Honolulu area and are just fun and exciting to listen to. All band members bare clearly capable musicians. I must admit Our Summer sucked me in like a powerful drug and refused to let go long after the EP was over. This usually indicates he is something special about the artist or band in question. Thus deserving praise, recognition and musical fame at the international level.
