This Is Why Fallen Roads’ “Don’t Fall” Is So Irresistible

One of my favorite recent releases is “Don’t Fall” by rock singer-songwriter Luke Rhodes under the moniker Fallen Roads. This alluring rock tune is such an addiction that it has to be on your playlists right now. But, why? Well, continue on to find out. Also, don’t forget to listen to the tune down below and let me know what you think!

If You Do, I Wouldn’t Be Able to Save You

There’s an overarching fear that’s threaded its way through my life for as long as I can remember. I guess I was a tightrope walker, But nobody told me. “Don’t Fall,” will strike a chord with anyone who’s ever felt like they were one step away from condemnation.

Fallen Roads

A mixture between classical, Motown, blues, and rock, “Don’t Fall” is a luscious tune that is a must-listen for its melodies and musicality. The tune starts with a lulled manner: alluring female backing vocals, soulful main vocals, and a melodic entrance by a piano. You can hear the song slowly climaxing from the beginning with the vocals. At first, it is presented in a raw matter. But, note-by-note, the vocals get distorted.

The climax of the song is at the chorus. The first verse is all in a lull, then all of a sudden at the chorus, the song’s energy peaks with a madden energy. But, this balance between the madden energy of the chorus and the lull mood of the verses is nicely balanced and each part compliant each other. These differences are also accompanied by appealing melodies that pull the listeners in a deep journey throughout “Don’t Fall” with their own unique personality: the soulful, rich one in the verses and the madden, raw one in the chorus.

Make sure to listen to the lyrics. They are written in a way that anyone can relate to. And, they are written oh so well. With these very relatable lyrics and contrast of different yet alluring musical personalities, “Don’t Fall” by Fallen Roads is one of my favorite recent releases, and it could be yours too. Listen to the song below and let me know what you think in the comments below!


About the Artist: Fallen Roads

Fallen Roads

Fallen Roads is the musical project of singer/songwriter Luke Rhodes. A primarily solo project, with a knack for finding great collaborators to bring his ideas to life.

Luke grew up steeped in a disparate sonic concoction of classical music, 90’s country, and a heavy (and healthy) helping of CCR and Motown. Homeschooled and sheltered in the stifling arms of an evangelical Southern Baptist church, it wasn’t until the rebellious teen years that he began to delve into the truly sinful and purely carnal rock music of NIN, Nirvana, and Sublime. His college/drunk years introduced him to the gods of the rock genre, with a years-long obsession with the iconic Led Zeppelin and Rage Against The Machine, that still rears its head from time to time (particularly on road trips). His more recent musical addictions include Awolnation, Hozier, Black Pistol Fire, and Reignwolf.

Luke’s writings are often reflective, and sometimes angry or mournful, of a life plagued by religion-induced shame, striving for unattainable perfection, and the fear of sin and damnation.  When he isn’t writing about the beliefs that haunt him, he’s writing about the timeless topic of love had and love lost, or improvising a song of undying affection for his dog, which he is fairly certain she reciprocates. If not, he hopes to never find out, because it would ruin him.
