Les Imprimés treat us to a tough as nails 7” pulling two stand out tracks from their forthcoming album in a classic Plug & Ballad pairing.
The A side “Falling Away” starts with a crushing drum break that Martens layers with lush piano runs, sitar, and guitar riffs. The lyrics almost contradict the tone of the track making it a bittersweet affair as he sings about love falling apart – “One day at a time girl you waste my life”.
On the B side “Still Here” Martens professes his resilience through life’s twists and turns over a thundering track that puts a new spin on the B side ballad genre. Martens blends his poetry with his excellent usage of space making this yet another tune from Les Imprimés that is easy to love but hard to categorize.
