Fallen Letters – ‘Forlorn Pages’ EP

Catching our ears the past few months with the singles “Remain A Memory” and “Our Own Demise,” Fallen Letters continue to impress with a delectably raucous dark-rock appeal on their new EP, Forlorn Pages. The Bangalore, India-based duo comprises Vishal Naidu (vocals, guitars, bass, keys) and Aditya Ramesh (guitars, bass, backing vocals). They worked with producer Mike Langford on this impressive EP.

Following a ghostly, ambient prologue, “For A While” kicks the EP into gear with a compellingly nocturnal guitar progression. Slight piano is infused thereafter, as a moody vocal presence emerges. The track is enjoyably indicative of Fallen Letters’ tendency to build with satiating tonal ferocity. The “falling into this river,” sequence sees an emotive escalation as thunderous guitars enter; the result is thoroughly captivating and full of emotion.

The EP consumes in its range of successes, from this stellar opener to the previously featured successes in “Remain A Memory” and “Our Own Demise.” Finale “Beneath the Opaque Veil” is another success. Mixed and mastered at Jens Bogren’s Fascination Street Studios in Sweden, the track unleashes a hard-rocking vigor that concludes the EP with an invigorating, lingering impression.

“Our Own Demise” and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.
