On the 17th the Irish dark-folk quartet The False And The Fair are set to release the single Gone Tomorrow.
Like the warm current on the Gulf Stream drifting off the West coast of Ireland – Gone Tomorrow – (available on bandcamp) invites the listener to dip their toes in to the cold ocean to find that despite the stormy waters there is comfort to be found in the forlorn context.
Brushed cymbals afford the composition a mesmeric quality as guitar twines across notes that require dexterous fingering through which a bass, that evokes of the frothy surf of breaking waves, burbles – all of which surround a tender vocal that the audience finds themselves reaching out to touch.
The beauty of Gone Tomorrow is to be found in its melancholic thread.
A rising bridge towards the latter section provides a startling interruption as the climactic intensity of the reality of the moment contemplated comes in to sharp focus prior to drifting back to the quietly paced introspection.
