Hailing from Melbourne, with a spicy infusion of Punk and Reggae the trio are set to pepper your ears with their latest release ‘Fall In’’ , the apocalyptic isolation anthem we have all been looking for. Making music to keep themselves sane in such a surreal time has bought the trio peace and hope that others can share and draw comfort from the track.
Dal Santo are Jimi and Gaurav and Sunny who have been playing music together since they first met in high school. Having a mutual love for all things bands and jamming, they started getting inspired to write music together and have been doing so since. Sunny spends her spare time running Melbourne’s only alternative queer party, BONEZ, which showcases queer bands, drag and burlesque performers and provides a safe space for all. Feeling a sense of unity, inclusion and safety is at the heart of Dal Santo’s music and represents everything they stand for.
Drawing inspiration from the SoCal scene to create a unique sound the single Fall In is a cynical view of the world when things are positive. It refers to the glass-half-empty feeling you get when things can only get worse (“When we’re raised we’ll fall in”). However, the song finds peace through the lyrics “Let yourself go”, accepting that that’s just what life is; a series of ups and downs. That message really resonated with us as a band after all the momentum from the summer and how quickly things came to a halt. 2020 is becoming the year of cancelled plans and dreaming of what you’d rather be doing. But maybe it’s also a time to re-evaluate what that might be. ”
The trio work hard to to make listeners feel included and have accompanied the release with a video that gives viewers a candid snap shot of life in isolation – complete with Zoom, iso hair cuts and home studios to create a narrative of the times. Shot in various locations around Melbourne, including the Evelyn rooftop the video is the perfect accompaniment to the punk track.
‘ Fall In’ is available now on all streaming services.
