White Tail Falls, solo project of The Hoosiers frontman Irwin Sparkes, comes to The Hope & Ruin in March 2020.
White Tail Falls unveiled new single, Give It Up, Son, in October 2019.
Opening to a blend of resonant acoustic guitar and pensive strings, ‘Give It Up, Son’ builds through climactic verses before opening into a pleading chorus. Underpinned by a meticulous drum machine beat and accompanied by beautiful violin melodies and subtle synths, the track addresses the viewpoint of observers who seek to save someone from the consequences of their actions.
Drawing upon influences from the worlds of folk, mellow pop and alternative music, White Tail Falls specialise in intoxicatingly beautiful soundscapes and equally self-reflective and observant lyricism. Reminiscent of kindred spirits such as Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, Nick Drake, Kevin Morby and the inventive musicality of Yo La Tengo, the result is a euphoric and immersive sonic palette touching upon a myriad of influences.
