Bodhikan – “When the World Falls Down”


“When the World Falls Down” captivates with its twangy guitar suaveness and bright synth reflections, showcasing the melodic chops of Bodhikan and their new album, Fresh Eyes. The guitar work plays with a more free-flowing enamoring as the synth strut a steady pulsation, crafting an enticing introduction.

The reassuring vocals declare they’re “not going anywhere,” when the world falls down, with the confidence playing aptly amidst the debonair guitar and synth pairings. The more understated vocal stylings, like approaching the two-minute mark, conjures a nostalgia reminiscent of The Stone Roses. “When the World Falls Down” shows a delightful production and memorable melodic composure.

Per the artist:

“This song was written during the pandemic in response to the intense feelings of division, social unrest, and change, but paints a picture of hope and coming out the other side stronger and a little bit lighter.”
