Formed back in 2016, London’s Canto Falls, made up of Mark Howarth, Adam Gillian and James Thackeray have spent the last year carefully creating their sound with the aim of blurring the line between pop and indie-rock. The result of that hard work has recently been released in the form of their debut single, Clarity.
That result is an instantly upbeat, neatly put together debut with a density to it’s lyrics. The soft melodies of the vocals add more of an emotion to the energy of Clarity’s fast, gangly guitar sound, creating an interesting contrast. Canto Falls have achieved their aim of blurring the lines between pop and indie-rock, maybe a little too much on the indie-rock side, but nonetheless Clarity is a strong, neatly crafted debut from the London trio.
