The Over Unders – “Falling For Yourself”


A peppy power-pop infection persists throughout “Falling For Yourself,” the latest single from The Over Unders, a trio from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Suave vocals and a bass-heavy envelopment traverses into breezy guitar jangles, soaring into the title-touting chorus — replay-inducing in its simultaneous effervescence and “loving someone else,” heartache.

Infusions of synths and “single string surf guitar” complement subject matter pursuing the notion that “the true root of infidelity is not love, lust, or falling out of love – it’s narcissism.” The trio of guitarist/vocalist Sam Hellman, drummer Matthew Hellman, and bassist Ray Remes showcase their vibrant, hooky songwriting on the stellar “Falling For Yourself.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2023’ Spotify playlist.
