The folk-pop ensemble Only on Tuesdays just released their double single, “Fall” and “Darling Dearest”, as a glimpse to their EP debuting next month. The tracks capture innocent vocals following through with flowering symbolism both in its musical and lyrical content. “Fall” and “Darling Dearest” mark the the first releases off their upcoming EP, Break Free; which will be released this coming May. Both tracks are now available on iTunes.
With an ethereal guitar opening, “Fall” sets the tone to a tender acoustic love song composed of meticulous imagery. Lyrically, the track metaphorically compares a deep love to the elements of nature. Front–woman Autumn Skibinski serenades, “…And when I die let me be a tree, take my ashes and bury me, water me so I may grow tall, so I can watch you, so you won’t fall,” suggesting a love so strong that even something as powerful as death cannot break it. Between Skibinski’s beautiful and breathy vocals and the serene melody of the guitar, “Fall” has an organic beauty that is unparalleled. Complimenting “Fall” is the folky upbeat track “Darling Dearest” which sweeps you away with Skibinski’s silky vocals. This song is an intricate composition whose message of love and a fundamental necessity of desire are amplified by keenly executed shifts in meter and feel. “Darling Dearest” takes you on a journey to a world of positivity and love serving as a preview into what is to come from this gentle powerhouse.
