"Falling Closer "The EP" Reviewed By André Monnéy"

It’s amazing what a few years can do when it comes to being in a band, but Falling Closer have proven that years can prove a maturity in music. The band’s first full length Face To Face With A New Day, proved promising, but the production of the album was so below average that fans were hardly able to notice the solid tracks the band offered; however, with the release of The EP Falling Closer has not only put more time on the production but have improved ten fold. The EP hits off with “The Great American Cop Out”, a solid rock tune where vocalist, Chris Huaraque, not only has shown awesome lyrical content, but also proves that a singer can front a solid, well placed scream when he feels like doing so (which he does throughout the entire record). The EP then burst into “Running With Scissors”, which is probably one of the heaviest tracks on the album and while it is my favorite track, some might feel it sets off the “the rock sound” that precede and follow it. In “Running” the band really show the flexibility of their music to move from metal to rock, creating their hard rock sound. Following this, “Pretty” sets listeners up for what is the most pop track on the album. The real big hitter comes with the final song of the 5 track EP, “To Whom It May Concern”. “To Whom It May Concern” proves that Falling Closer is able to pull off a softer sound than just playing an acoustic version of a song. In fact it is probably better than any “softer” song that Falling Closer has ever released because not only have they mastered a soft rock sound, but they manage to turn it into their strong hard rock flow while never losing that soft, emotion filled edge. Chris wails into the mic “if I could only focus my eyes, I’d map out these clear thoughts”; well let’s only hope that if that focus comes, the band brings something as good as this. - somethingpunk.net

Bio

Falling Closer are no strangers to the life of a rock band. Starting out as a side project from the Portland band, ELeMeNT, Falling Closer enlisted vocalist, Chris Hauraque, alongside Jon Johnson, Brent …, and Bon McBee (all members of ELeMeNT) in April of 2004. Falling Closer realized that they had something special going and decided to pursue their career as a band full time, due to the lack of a vocalist in ELeMeNT (inevitably putting the axe down for ELeMeNT). Falling Closer was now born.

This quartet wasted no time in and hit the ground running with their band. Falling Closer wrote a whole new set of seven songs in three weeks and jumped on their first show (a show that ELeMeNT was originally suppose to be play). After being together for 6 months, Falling Closer recorded their debut full length debut, Face To Face With A New Day. The album was released in January of 2005.

With a new full length under their belt, Falling Closer hit the road. Having shared the stage with bands like: 36 Crazyfists, Trigger Point, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Strata, Alien Ant Farm, Lorena Drive, Adema, lovehatehero, and Bleed The Dream, Falling Closer settled in to begin writing a new EP. The self titled EP (Falling Closer The EP) was released in May 2007. In this time original drummer, Bon McBee left to pursue a career as a police officer. Instead of quitting, the band continued their process while searching for a new drummer.

Falling Closer began jamming with Kyle Baltus, who soon after became their new full time drummer. This addition brought something new and real to the band. The addition of Kyle pushed the bands writing style to be more creative and aggressive with their songs as well as a whole new style to the live show. The band again began writing new songs. With a new solidified line up and new songs, Falling Closer again hit the road once more. Their intentions where never to change the world, but play the music they love and to share that music with their friends, fans, and music lovers.
