"Falling Out" CD
Genres: indie rock, rock
Jan 6 - 12 2003
For You play their own brand of catchy, enjoyable indie rock.
Though occasionally happy and upbeat, the band tends towards a darker,
more charged sound; sometimes they use a female vocalist, sometimes a
male singer, and sometimes both. Falling Out is their debut
release, and it combines the thrash and growl of punk with the melodic
structure of indie rock.
A bit discordant at first, it doesn't take long to really get into Falling
Out; once your ears are tuned to the frantic instability of the
guitars, you'll have the melodies stuck in your head for ages.
"Call off the Dogs" is a good example; though at first you
may be put off by the guitar lines, which casually change from spacey
to playful to chiming to revved-up, it won't take long before you
start humming it in your head.
While all the songs on the album are satisfying, a few stick out.
"French Lies" and "Loose Truth," in particular,
really impress. The former is a fast-paced epic, while the latter
boasts a simple, infectious melody that's easy to sing along to. Also
notable are the catchy "No Trombone" and the playful
"Can't Hardly Stop."
Altogether, Falling Out is a fantastic album. With a great,
fresh sound, it hopefully won't be long before Good For You
become the next hot ticket on the indie scene.
