“We recorded this song in 2020 when it felt like the world was pulling in multiple directions all at once, and the divide was getting bigger, wider, and deeper.” Said, Alta Falls. “The song asks, ‘How did we all get so sure about things, and get so stuck in our own heads that we can’t even see things from someone else’s perspective? What if there was a world where people saw things from the other side?’”.
Combining a wide range of influences, Alta Falls takes glimpses of The Preatures’ rhythms, Spacey Jane’s guitars, The Weeknd’s synth lines, and The Wombats’ energy to put their take on modern indie.

With a catalogue of music ready to be released, Alta Falls are preparing their entrance into the independent Australian music scene, proving themselves a force of nature with addictive melodies, soaring harmonies, retro instrumentation, and skilful lyricism.
