Following on from the success of their 2019 sophomore EP The Light That You Saw, Melbourne alternative rock/emo five-piece Reside have returned with a new single, dubbed ‘Fallen’.
Self-produced and recorded by frontman Liam Guinane (ex-Windwaker) and mastered by Kris Samos (Bad Juju, Between You and Me, Earth Caller), ‘Fallen’ picks up right where that EP left off, exploring — according to Guinane — “themes of unrequited love and the breakdown of a relationship”.
“‘Fallen serves as a bit of a transition for the band’s sound and direction, taking more influence and elements from post punk and new wave but still retains the core alternative rock and emo sound that we’ve established before,” Guinane continues.
The single comes packing a music video created by guitarist and cinematographer Ariel Johnson in collaboration with Liam Davidson of Lord Media.
“We wanted to use more expressive visuals rather than focus on a narrative,” Johnson explains. “We shot footage in a way that kept a high degree of flexibility in mind for the editing stage.
“During post production, I relied heavily on visual effects and compositing to produce effects similar to double exposures and analogue feedback,” he continues. “This helped communicate themes of isolation and identity struggles that Liam wrote into the lyrics of the song.”

This is arena-sized emo rock… think Angels And Airwaves meets Bring Me The Horizon.
