Internet Money’s Trevor Daniel Shares Video for His Lovelorn Viral Hit “Falling”

The ideal avatar for Internet Money’s industry-conquering ambitions, Houston singer-songwriter Trevor Daniel’s lovelorn vocals and sharp writing enhance and complement his rich instrumentals. Coming through with his first-ever music video, Trevor Daniel shares “Falling.” Featuring a textured instrumental from Internet Money founder Taz Taylor, along with co-producers Charlie Handsome and KC Supreme, “Falling” bursts with intimate detail, combining gently plucked acoustic guitars with swells of bass synth, as Trevor Daniel displays the breadth of his talents with infectious melodic runs and cockeyed harmonies. Premiered by HYPEBEAST, the new video for “Falling” is a hallucinatory epic, following Trevor on a neon-lit journey through planes of reality, as he’s accompanied by a woman who either loves him…or wants to kill him. Or both.


“Ruby was the last song I wrote for the record,” shared Kerekes. “Everything about it came so easy and felt so good; it all fell into place very naturally. The song makes me feel something, and that was pretty much my only intention.”

At the time it wasn’t exactly the place to hear harmonies and harpsichords so much as songs about sniffing glue. This isn’t to say they didn’t like the raucous power of Magik Milk, on the contrary. But, as the people who would come to make up the band began to talk, it became clear that they wanted to make something different entirely. They wanted to make something with the heartbeat of sweaty city basement shows but with the unrestrained imagination of places and times where they had never been.
