With the first note you hear from Phalcons you realise that they could not have formed in any other part of the world apart from North Wales.
They possess its rugged, yet magically mysterious mountains and rippling rivers in their very being and in every sound they create.
Already veterans from previous bands of the flourishing psychedelic pop/folk scene, that is synonymous with the area, Phalcons’ four members offer something familiar, yet challengingly new. They take influences from an array of diverse artists, from Chris Cohen and Courtney Barnett to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
Phalcons dreamy and emotionally pure sound can be found distilled perfectly into their debut single, ‘Idle Ways’. Even when writing about our darker instincts and fragmented dreams Phalcons songs find beauty in the rubble love leaves behind.
‘Idle Ways’ is love found, love lost and love squandered through drifting emotions and distance, both physical and imagined. The song starts with the rush and excitement of sleepless neon nights and hazy glimpses through nocturnal living ‘I try to see you through the smoke in the crowd’. This new found love eventually succumbs to the authors ‘idle ways’ before he pleads. “Get up wash away the haze, get out and embrace the day”. The song leaves you with a sense of a new start, a new turning, a new sound to enthral and captivate our hearts through the sadness.
