Fall Electric Bio
Fall Electric is a storm of acoustic music revolving around the songs of former adamsaidgalore mainman Andrew Ryan. Andrew’s steel string guitar claps as sharp as lightning. Tristen Parr can be seen regularly playing with Schvendes, his cello playing with Fall Electric is the gusts of a breeze keen and powerful enough to flip young ladies off their feet. Pete Guazzelli’s drumming is the rain… pelting in perfect continuous increments… at times in buckets and at others like a sun shower. Having incorporated a range of different musicians in the studio, the band brought in fourth member Stina Thomas to help realise their recorded sound live. Stina, an artist in her own right uses her Micro-Korg to weave glimmering, sometimes dirty electronics through the mix creating a ribbon of continuity between the plucked and bowed strings of the guitar and cello then wrapping it around the kick drum to tie the whole band together.
If you need a reference point, Fall Electric’s music is for fans of the Dirty Three, Will Oldham, Neil Young, Mum, mice parade, do make say think, Tom Waits and other stuff that values melody and texture as much as songcraft. Lyrically Fall Electric’s songs focus on riddled philosophic inquiries, ironies within romance, the nature of admitting human weakness, and other enjoyably unsolvable topics.
