“The Short Fall” – ‘Make A Move’ (On The Big Time !)

One of the most impressive Bands I came across recently in The Brisbane “Sound Waves” experience was “The Short Fall”. These guy’s were in a Line Up Showcasing Regional Queensland Bands. The Brothers Angelo and Ryan have been playing together for such a long time it is instinctive to them … and such a pleasure to watch !
During this Acoustic Set they were totally at ease with their Instruments. They exchanged playing Acoustic Lead and Rhythm between each other catching the others’ prompts effortlessly. The harmonies they produce are perfect and such a treat to hear. These days it is common for a Band to over-ride their own inadequate Vocal’s with Instrumental Volume.
This is not the case with “The Short Fall” however ! No one could ever accuse these guy’s of being inadequate on any of their instruments, which includes their well structured Vocal abilities. The Mix was perfect as well, every instrument could be heard. Which was impressive because it helped to showcase the Band.
Each member of the Band knew when to pull back and when to take a lead. There were only 3 members present on this particular Showcase night, the Brothers Ryan and Angelo Conway, as well as the Drummer / Percussionist from Busby Marou DJ Syme. Who they borrowed for the night.
This Band was filled with highlight’s and it wasn’t just the Conway Brother’s that had control of them. DJ sat on his Beat Box with minimal self-styled percussion instruments surrounding him, maintaining a perfect symbiotic relationship with the 2 Acoustic Guitars.
Every musician there was totally impressed with what DJ achieved on his minimalist rhythm kit ! On one occasion he took a  Solo during a Song and it was definitely a highlight of the night !
These guy’s are from Rockhampton and like Busby Marou are bound to become favoured Australian Son’s from Rural Queensland.

The Short Fall

Fresh from recording their new EP in Byron Bay with producer, Anthony Lycenko (BusbyMarou, Pete Murray, Elvis Costello), the The Short Fall are keen to show off the fruits of their hard work. With a new, more mature sound drawing from influences such as Coldplay, Jeff Buckley, City & Colour, Boy & Bear, and The Temper Trap, The Short Fall’s record, ‘Make a Move’ is a unique blend of alternative indie folk and rock.

Led by brothers Angelo & Ryan Conway, the aptly named ‘Make a Move’ EP, signals a shift towards a more mature sound, and a preparation to move beyond the borders of their home town in Rockhampton, Queensland.

‘Make a Move’ contains 5 beautifully crafted songs, showcasing the Conway brother’s talents for vocal harmonies and guitar playing. The record kick starts with the punchy, upbeat and infectiously catchy ‘Maybe We’re Losing’, before pulling back into the mellow and dreamy title track ‘Make a Move’. The third track ‘The Meadow’ is a hauntingly beautiful acoustic song that captures the feelings of regret and helplessness in a love-gone-wrong. The brothers describe ‘Hide and Seek’ as having the perfect build, growing layer by layer from a singular acoustic guitar and vocal, to a sweepingly epic crescendo, while the final track ‘Take what’s left of me’ is an acoustic love song that will send you on your way with a smile on your face.
