So what’s it all about?

After some relationships, you think ‘what the... how did that happen?’, especially ones that are like handcuffing yourself to a missile. Cool or crazed? Or maybe they were both... The glamour and danger seems irresistible. Then one night, at a sharp bend, the car left the A422.

We're also reflecting on the thought that much of what we do is driven by romance or romantic notions: relationships, lifestyle, politics, perhaps most of the choices we make.

We worked this track to quite a finished state some time ago, but coming back to it after a while allowed us a bit more objectivity – we were finally able to complete it with some key parts that really made us smile.

The single is available here.


1. An ancient Braun digital alarm clock makes a guest appearance on this track.

2. There's an even bigger gap than usual between the 'I keep on...' and 'falling' call and response vocals - about five years.

3. Sally-Ann is said to be in a ‘comfortable’ condition after faultlessly performing the track’s technically demanding finger-cymbal solo.

4. Squelchy synth, razor-thin Fender Telecaster, Fender Precision Bass and big strings create the soundscape for ‘Falling’.

Silverlake is:
Sally-Ann Parker – vocals
Tony Sherrard – bass & programming
R. R. Dallaway – guitar & keyboards
