We’re delighted to share the first single from The False and the Fair‘s upcoming debut EP ‘The Space In Between’. The band have given us a slew of singles over the last 2 years as well as some fantastic live videos but the new EP will be their first extend release. If this first track ‘In The Shade of The Mountain’ is anything to go by, you’re going to want to pick this one up when it drops on November 18th.
The vocals in the verse draw the listener in with a comforting familiarity, painting the scene beautifully and taking us to another part of the world where we can relax. The track then expands into a full blown psychedelic 60’s tinged instrumental section that echoes the original melody that elevates the song above your average folk ballad. I can’t wait to hear what else these guys have in store on the rest of the EP.
The False And The Fair will be launching their EP with a headline show in Whelan’s on November 18th at 7:30pm. Support on the night come from the incredible Emily of Vernon Jane playing a rare solo acoustic set and Dublin singer/songwriter Aisling Jarvis. Tickets are €10 on the door or €8.50 in advance available here.
THE FALSE AND THE FAIR present ‘In the Shade of the Mountain’, the lead single from their upcoming EP.
On a camping trip in the Wicklow mountains, Tommy was the first to wake up. He climbed some rocks and sat down, headphones on, looking down over the campsite where his friends slept. As he breathed in the cool morning air, the voice of Townes Van Zandt reverberated in his ears:
“…the sun will rise soon on the False and the Fair.”
In that moment a band was born. Once assembled, Cormac, Adam and Jacob wove their psychedelic web around Tommy’s distinctive vocals and folk songwriting to create a uniquely atmospheric blend of alternative rock. New single ‘In the Shade of the Mountain’ pays tribute to these origins while celebrating the beauty of the natural world in which we all strive for purpose.
