Review - Vandeville Falls - When I Fall (Single)

Vandeville Falls - When I Fall (Single)

View The Review

6 out of 10

A pleasant-enough bimble through glade planted with Harriet Wheeler, Eddi Reader and some Cyndi Lauper shoots. Violins reel, everything's bright and sparkly. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the nurseryman responsible has previously watered the likes of the Cranberries and Texas. There's a Radio Two, Four or Six guest slot with their name on it somewhere, Loose Ends if they're (un)lucky.

The accompanying cover of the club classic doesn't quite work, as the vocal is a bit too close to Nadia Ali's delivery for comfort. Also, the dodgy lyrics can be heard in full, without the safe cover of a thumping drum track. Coming soon to a festival acoustic tent near you.


1. When I Fall
