CMU Approved

Approved: Fallulah – Dragon

By | Published on Thursday 19 September 2013


Fallulah released her debut album, ‘The Black Cat Neighbourhood’, to high acclaim in her native Denmark (and here in CMU) back in 2010. Since then she has released a reasonably steady stream of new music. I’ve not been instantly enamoured with everything she’s put out in that time, but new track ‘Dragon’ hits all the criteria for a great Fallulah track dead on.

Taken from her second album, ‘Escapism’ (which was released in Denmark back in February but is yet to ‘escape’ to these shores), ‘Dragon’ is pop, but driven by a tense piano line and overdriven, heavy metal-style percussion. In the middle sits Fallulah’s voice, sweet and forceful at the same time. The whole track is a wash of contrasts, expertly balanced against each other.
