Anyone who's carefully followed Falling Up's discography will likely note 2008's singles collection Discover the Trees Again was simultaneously the end of an era and the start of an incredibly exciting new chapter. Though the Jessy Ribordy-led outfit is certainly proud of projects like 2004's Crashings, 2005's Dawn Escapes, 2006's Exit Lights and 2007's Captiva, its forthcoming offering Fangs (BEC Recordings) maintains hints of the band's alternative/electronic rock blend, but raises the artistic steak, so to speak, on both musical and lyrical planes. "We're definitely in a transitional mode right now and I feel like the greatest hits disc wrapped up one half of our careers," observes Ribordy, whose confident the stylistic shifts will captivate its current fan base, but also widen the audience to more adventurous heights.
"We're really focusing a lot on every angle of the group- from the studio to reinventing the live show. Back when we first started, we were going crazy the whole time and doing back flips, but the last couple years, we've been very jam-oriented, spending six or seven minutes messing around like Pink Floyd." Taking cues from those very progressive rock heroes, along with current masterminds like The Mars Volta, Fangs dives head first in a conceptual direction where each and every instrument, lyric and line of vocal delivery revolves around an intriguing world of fiction and fantasy. While previous Falling Up projects have traced more personal sides of Ribordy's songwriting, this collection was inspired from his other life as a screen play writer, particularly the yet to be released script "Neptuenne's Cavern."
