A late review of Asta Fall’s latest EP ‘Brothers’.
Back in December we featured the song End it Starts, a song that we’re still playing a lot at the office. It was released under the alias Asta Fall’s Feminist Alibi, and it still seems a bit confusing whether it’s Asta Fall or Asta Fall’s Feminist Alibi – either way, Mikkel Sönnichsen recently released an EP more than worthy of a listen. And since this EP only has three songs, I’m gonna write this review slightly different than usually – and I’m gonna go with Asta Fall.
Right, with this EP we’re gonna go on a bike ride together. So picture yourself stepping up on that wonderful bike of yours. The weather is nice, and you are wearing your best headphones.
Play the song End It Starts
The bike ride itself takes 13 minutes and 49 seconds, and the first 4 minutes and 16 seconds is rather flat. And most of us know that this is a good thing when riding a bike. The bike ride has no purpose, besides getting from A to B. You are not in any way in a hurry, and during this song you got the time to witness all the beautiful parks and the beautiful people you see on your way. The beat makes you rather calm, and the vocal from Johanne Holm puts a smile on your face. We’re pretty much-enjoying life right now.
Play the song New Lands
Now we’ve taken a turn now, and since this is Aarhus – we’re going up that hill. The hill is steam as f**k, but one of those we love climbing! For 4 minutes and 44 seconds we’re going crazy on our bikes, and for that we need just the right tune – and luckily it’s going from your headphones and straight to your legs. By the end of this song we’ve almost reached the top!
Play the song Change Coming
As the song starts, we’re almost at the top. By now reaching the top seems easy, and the feeling you have is rather victorious – not in a celebration way, but in a calm “I did it, and it was easy”-way. At the bottom of this hill we’ll reach our destination, and it’s completely up to you to picture what that place looks like.
The ride has been good; it’s well produced and even thought it’s only three songs it brings a lot of different emotions. However, given that the EP only has three songs I won’t give it more than a 3 – but I’m intrigued!
