“Falcon Down is no diamond in the rough, he’s more like freshly broken glass spat out by the ocean, raw, sharp and unpolished. The lure of this undiscovered artist’s music is both exciting and captivating. You don’t need to listen for long before you start to sink into the true depth and beauty of these songs.”
Falcon Down's only member is Daniel Childerley. He was rehearsing with 'The NoHawks' a classic punk rock band when the world seemed to stop. He decided to put down his drum sticks and picked up his neglected guitars. The songs on this EP are a response to the turbulent backdrop we are all facing.
Writing songs at the end of the world in a drum shed which is constantly battered by the wind is all the inspiration one really needs. His song writing process like the tracks themselves is rather niche, he goes walking amongst the strong gales and lets their melodies merge with his tinnitus. The results are different but nobody ever stood out by being a facsimile. He embraces his flawed but effective vocal and writes meaningful and honest lyrics.
The songs on his latest EP release 'Embers' are intended to be enjoyed on a winters night. He may falter but he never quits.
His new home on Shetland has been a huge influence on this release and If you ever get a chance you too should visit the home of the world's largest Viking fire festival.
His Influences include: Yusuf/Cat Stevens, Deftones and Biffy Clyro to name a few.
All words and music by Daniel Childerley.
Embers EP out on 30/11/20.
