LISTEN: White Tail Falls - 'Disintegrate'

Time for a premiere, kind of... this one's been out in the world all day, but if you've not had the pleasure of listening to it yet, let me introduce you. White Tail Falls is an exciting new and slightly mysterious project from one of my favourite humans. Having released debut single Give It Up, Son towards the end of 2019, he's today shared brand new track Disintegrate and it's absolutely sublime. It's a gorgeously ambient track, with Irwin's vocals sitting atop a delicate and pulsing blend of strings, guitar and piano, with drum beats and synths building throughout.

In its various guises, Irwin's music has soundtracked much of my life so a brand new project is all kinds of exciting and I genuinely can't wait to hear more - luckily, he's announced details of debut album Age Of Entitlement, which is due for release on March 6th via Physical Education Records.

With his epic songwriting skills on show with this one, talking about the track, Irwin explains that "I was thinking about bloodlines and procreation and how we think we've got power over it when the decision is ultimately out of our hands [...] over-thinking about the family I'm from and the family I hadn't started and the implications of having kids or not and remembering the love I do have in my life, to go skipping into the apocalypse with. It became a bit of an existential love song." 

What's that? You want tour dates. That's lucky - White Tail Falls head out on a UK headline tour through March and April, dates below. I hear that if you save the track on Spotify here, you'll be entered with a chance to win two tickets to a show of your choice. Who doesn't love a freebie.
