Penned during a creative retreat in Napa, Falling For You explores the disorienting nature of emotional entanglements. Amidst the chaos of feelings, the track delves into the struggle of maintaining one’s identity amidst the turmoil of love and longing.

Eliza Klatt (lead singer) comments, Falling For You was a personal favourite from the get go for me. There’s just something about the driving beat and the soaring melodies that I love. We knew we wanted to experiment with saxophone for this record, and this song felt like the perfect track for that. I think it has so much emotion to it, and it’s such a beautiful part of the song. To me, lyrically it’s about not wanting to fall down the rabbit hole of falling in love but you just can’t help it.

The band have also shared the stunning visuals, enlisting Brisbane videographer and 3D designer Tom Carroll (@egumei) to bring to life the concept of the garden.

“It was actually amazing seeing the whole visual side of things come together – seeing the entire Garden come to life the way he had imagined it. Visuals are always such an important part of a record to us, we always want to try something different and really push the boundaries of the ideas we have.”

Make It Feel Like The Garden was conceptualised on the road during their North American tour in 2022, with Kurt Skuse (guitarist) and Eliza writing majority of the album at their DIY studio in Napa, California, before heading back home and recording with visionary producer Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy, Teen Jesus and the Jean Teasers, CLEWS, Amy Shark) at his studio in Rye, Victoria.

Describing the process, Eliza says “It was interesting to see how working in a different part of the world, outside of the comfort of our home studio and Australia in general, has influenced our writing and the process of demoing the songs. Recording the album with Oscar Dawson was an incredibly collaborative experience. He continued to push us out of our comfort zones which lead us to feeling really free creatively. I think this also made us write in our most honest and genuine form.”

The album will also include latest release & title track Make It Feel Like The Garden which has received massive support from Triple M, including being added on their national Homegrown program and Triple M Brisbane Weekend Nights, plus airplay across triple j, SYN FM, 4ZZZ, 2SER and Rebel FM.

This week the trio will join Scottish sensations The Snuts on their Millennials Tour across Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. They recently performed a gorgeous cover of their single Gloria, which the band reshared – watch here
