Melodic hooks, soaring harmonies, and vintage 80s synth and guitar vibes are the defining features of Alta Falls, an indie electropop duo from Brisbane, Australia.

While the lyrical content is focused on the significant, the sound creates brilliantly danceable earworms. The sort you’d happily sink vodka Red Bulls to at a festival.

December 2021 saw Alta Falls round out the year with the release of their debut EP ‘The Fire’, a high-energy 5-track EP that packs a punch with catchy lyricism carried by a euphoric kind of feeling.

2022 now sees Alta Falls kick off their year with an Aussie Rules-inspired indie electro-pop anthem, ‘Trust Me’. It combines masterful lyricism packed with double entendres with a newfound sense of conviction, building on Alta Falls’ debut EP, 'The Fire'. The track takes you through a narrative of its own, not just through the lyrics but with the instrumentals which rise and fall with the peaks of the story — eventually culminating to a frenetic yet flawless keyboard line.

The lyrics on ‘Trust Me’ were inspired after a bittersweet trip to the 2017 AFL Grand Final. “My team, the Adelaide Crows, were in their first grand final after almost 20 years, and my hopes were riding high to achieve a childhood dream of watching them win a flag,” explains lead singer, Nathanael. “Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. And although it was a heartbreaking result there are still plenty of fond memories, including taking in the post-match The Killers concert along with the other half of Alta Falls, Matt.”

The duo has continued working with producer Aidan Hogg (Jaguar Jonze, Holy Holy) for the new single, as well as Sebastian 'Baz' Jennings Hingston (Tia Gostelow) on drums.

Combining a wide range of influences, Alta Falls takes glimpses of The Preatures’ rhythms, Spacey Jane’s guitars, The Weeknd’s synth lines, and The Wombats’ energy to put their take on modern indie.

Alta Falls may have released their debut EP only a matter of months ago but they aren’t slowing down any time soon. Rumour has it a new EP is already in the works, and if ‘Trust Me’ is anything to go off, it’s bound to be an electro-pop delight, packed with that Alta Falls synthy charm.
