New LLLL Featuring U-Pistol: “Falling”

Words have often drifted out of the dreamy electronic compositions of LLLL. Although their are plenty of songs from the Tokyo producer featuring singing obscured by an array of synths (or no words at all), a fair amount also have vocalists coming through clearly to up the emotional ante. “Falling,” though, features what might very well be the most emotionally naked the lyrics on an LLLL song have gotten. They come courtesy of U-Pistol (formerly Ulzzang Pistol), who offers some urgent and immediate words inspired by a rough 2017. Coupled with LLLL’s driving rhythms and, at one point, a guitar solo, this reckoning with depression becomes heightened, and gives “Falling” an extra rush, albeit an emotionally heavy one.
