Dance-pop producer and writer duo FADES return with their exciting new single "Freefall". The musical endeavor of brothers and session musicians Nick and Luke Jekyll, FADES have always had a passion for big infectious choruses and melodic grooves.
Speaking on the single, the duo described that “We initially wrote the track around a guitar sample that was really metallic & piercing. When we came back to release the track a year later, we replaced it with a prophet 12 & tape sample. We are huge fans of dark, moody verses & big expansive choruses. It’s the classic technique of creating tension in the verse & pre through sparse production and rising automation, to allow the chorus to have impact and variation. We wanted it to be traditionally moody and euphoric–but with a big pop chorus. Carys has this amazing way of delivering pop vocals and as a truly astonishing writer–she brought something really special to this track.”
Resembling the pop-leaning house sounds of Disclosure or Hot Natured, the Surrey-born brother duo have also been building their live set-up, consisting of live instruments from bass, guitars and keys to keys DJ decks and mixers. Their hard work both in the studio and on the live circuit has found them featured on BBC Introducing.
