Listen: Mines Falls – “From Behind Glass” [2020]

Recently checked out the sophomore self-titled record from brotherly L.A. duo Mines Falls. The whole record has a big emphasis on dynamic, rolling waves of staccato guitars and warm synthesizers amongst a grandiose backdrop of strings and piano. Think Wild Beasts! The track I thought displayed these songwriting tactics best was the penultimate track, “From Behind Glass”, sculpting out a vast, moody soundscape of booming, emotional vocals amongst a lush arrangement of guitar, piano, strings and percussion. The breakdown near the end, as the song kind of opens up and lets the strings and the drums narrate the emotion at the end really sells it for me. Beautiful stuff!

Mines Falls is out now – check it out on their Bandcamp.
