Review: The Fallows at Telfords

Our good friend Dan Schott popped along to the mighty Telfords on Saturday to witness the force of nature that is “The Fallows”.

Up and coming Ellesmere Port quartet “The Fallows” have been making waves throughout the North West with their relentless touring of Chester, Liverpool and the surrounding areas. Formed in 2010, and fronted by ‘Rock God in Waiting’ Gavin Swann, this gig was probably the last chance to see the band at an intimate venue before they quite rightfully take the next step on the road to musical stardom. Their music is relentless, foot-stomping Indie Rock ‘N’ Roll of the highest calibre. I could hear elements of Kasabian in their music, influenced by funkier sounds of the 70s Rolling Stones. Skinny hips and heavy melodies delivered with tightness and flair.   ‘Take My Heart’ and the excellent ‘Shoot Your Gun’ got the crowd moving and grooving, and the new track ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll’ suggests a band evolving and maturing their sound.

It’s nice to see “The Fallows” developing a travelling fan-base. Telford’s was bouncing with people knowing and feeling every lyric and guitar chord played. Getting down the front meant taking your life into your own hands. Moshing the way it should be; personal space at a premium, with elbows free of charge. A proper Rock ‘N’ Roll gig.

You really need to check out The Fallows. Here’s where to find them.

Awesome stuff.
