Ange From The Rising Rock Show Speaks to Falling Nine
Written by kirk on December 18, 2020
Ange Speaks to Falling Nines as part of our Artist Interview Series
are a 2-piece rock project from Cardiff, Wales consisting of David Lydiard (Vocals, Guitars, Synths) & Steven Watts (Guitars, Bass, Drums, Synths). Since its inception, the pair has been joined by several collaborators.
The duo, who have known each other since school, create Rock music with a melodic edge and cite numerous influences spanning multiple genres from Classic Rock to Pop and from Blues to Black Metal.
Debut EP ‘All Paths Divide’ (2007) saw the band reach fans across the globe by utilising the power of the Internet with single ‘Quicksand’ picking up airplay on National radio. Where ‘All Paths Divide’ featured multi-layered vocals to create rich harmonies and counter melodies, 2009’s full-length debut ‘Sound Machine’ had a more back-to-basics setup of drums, bass and guitars. From the monster, catchy riff of vitriolic opener ‘Fist Through A Wall’ through to the didgeridoo drone of closing track ‘Trapped (1810 Onwards), ‘Sound Machine’ captured Falling Nine doing what they do best; creating heavy rock with sing-along melodies that demand to be listened to again and again.
After a brief hiatus Falling Nine set to work on two new releases with contrasting sounds. 2015’s ’Sustain & Release’ EP continued where ‘Sound Machine’ left off with big riffs and catchy melodies whilst for 2016’s ‘Atonement’ the band unplugged for an introspective, semi-acoustic EP which featured music videos for lead singles ‘Piece By Piece’ and ‘Goodbye’.
On November 27th, 2020 Falling Nine will release a cover of ‘Fox on the Run’, originally written and performed by 70s Glam Rockers Sweet with more new music to follow in 2021.
