This is The Falls, by the way. Not The Fall. You're not going to hear a drunk northern English mentalist/genius ranting in the above clip. Rather you'll hear beautiful folk from a Sydney duo that met, fell in love, wrote songs, fought, made up, broke up and wrote songs.
At a time when for most it would be the end of a relationship, for Sydney outfit The Falls this feels like just the beginning… The first single Home, is a bitter sweet tale of escapism and the search for clarity, and the final realisation that no matter how hard you try and avoid life’s difficulties, in the end you must deal with them. The Falls have documented their whole relationship in their songs. The love, the betrayal, the heartbreak. While at times it is hard for them to wear their hearts so openly on their sleeve, for The Falls, it has been a huge part of their songwriting. In the fallout from Valentines Day, The Falls decided that rather than wallowing in self-pity they would put their heartbreak to tape. So they pulled out their little tascam 4-track portastudio, which, with all its tape wobbles and noise, aptly captured the fragility of their hearts. These fledgling recordings were just the beginning of what has become their debut EP (released July 2012), from which this single is taken.
