Biography

Reversing Falls make explosive pop music - a Montreal based trio fueled by distorted guitars, anthemic melodies and hard hitting drum machine beats. Formed in Montreal during 2007 by Tyler Crawford (vocals, guitar) and Jesse Ash (bass), the band took it's current shape after enlisting guitarist Charlie Neufeld and the steady tick of an Akai MPC 1000.

Their 2010 Recoder EP was recorded by the band and Martin Horn (Parlovr, Cotton Mouth) and mixed by Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Timber Timbre, The Unicorns). Recoder showcases their ability to deliver precision crafted, filler free guitar pop and has garnered comparisons to Pavement, Guided by Voices, Big Black or a more abrasive Sloan.

In early 2011, the band reunited with Lawson for the single "Little Goodbye / Doom Beach". LGB / DB takes the streamlined ADD guitar blast of Recoder and pushes it into the red: gleaming acoustic guitars, laser beam riffs and a manic croon backed by churning bass and a drum machine blast. These clusters of "controlled chaos" are a preview of the band's upcoming debut LP.

2011 sees the band touring Canada and fine tuning their debut LP at Montreal's Digital Bird Studios.

"There’s definitely a sense of controlled chaos to this collection of songs, and that’s one thing that sets Reversing Falls apart from other noise-pop upstarts that have cropped up over the last little while." - Quick Before it Melts

"When Montreal’s Reversing Falls enters the studio, a finer understanding and appreciation of sound drives the end results." - Herohill

"Three local boys armour up the guitars and go bombing through tunes that seem on the precipice of spinning out of control, but which somehow always manage to crash back in around their simple, central songwriting ideas." - The Hour (Montreal)

"Longer isn’t always better. - 8/10" - Montreal Mirror
