Premiere: Hunter Ellis – “We All Fall Down”


“We All Down” is a stirring rocker out today from Hunter Ellis, the Northern California-based artist featured previously with the tracks “Be There Now” and “The Turn.” The track represents the second single from Ellis’ forthcoming album, Princess Daddy, releasing August 26th via Earth Libraries.

Trickling, warm guitar tones form gradually amidst pit-pattering percussion, as Ellis’ vocals emerge with a soaring whimsy. “But words can never hurt me,” he sings amidst flourishing guitar bursts past the two-minute turn, traversing into a lush and scaled-back haze with bluesy piano additives. The ensuing build-up back into the rock-forward fervency — “we all fall down,” — plays with satiating appeal, into a distortion-friendly conclusion. “We All Fall Down” is another surefire success from Hunter Ellis.

This track and others featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2022’ Spotify playlist.
