At the end of 2020, I wrote about the single “Don’t Think I’m Shallow” by the Norwegian indie rock-pop/trip-hop duo Temperature Falls. I said that the song “is a delectable mixture of sweetness and spiciness that will make listeners crave for more”. Now, six months later. I am back with the duo’s newest album Nothing To Believe In Anymore. This album features so many fine textures that are alluring and luscious, but also topics that relate to us in this current age. Why? Let’s figure that answer out together down below.
Why Should You Listen to Nothing To Believe In Anymore?
There is so a handful of reasons why you should listen to the duo’s newest album. One reason is the musicality featured in each track. The album features a darker sound in the instrumentation with gritty guitar licks and heavy synth riffs. Just take a look at tracks at like “I Need You To Hold Me”, “Pass Me a Cigarette” and “Death By Suffocation” as they feature that dark yet crunchy sounds. The tones help to highlight the theme of the lyrics and each track’s overall mood, and it is done in a very intricating and ear-pleasing way.
However, Nothing To Believe In Anymore isn’t all dark. There are moments where ethereal, light sounds are present within the album. You can hear this lighter mood with the chilled trip hop beats in such songs like “Care Free”, “Hyped”, and “When The Party Is Over”. Furthermore, there is also ethereal featured in vocals as the tones are light, melodic, yet mysterious. Camila’s vocals help to balance out the album’s dark instrumentation with her light, mysterious vocals.
Lastly, the overall theme of the album is very important to listen to as it is totally relatable to mostly everybody. The songs feature such topics like addiction and recovery, suicidal thoughts and breaking out of bad relationships. Even though these topics are dark, it is important to listen for the overall theme of turning away from the world’s negativity to focus on things or people that effect you and that are more important you.
You can hear this message through out each track off album, especially in tracks like “Leash Your Promises”, “Care Free”, and “I Need You To Hold Me”. This theme of valuing the things that are important to you is something that all listeners can relate to.
Nothing To Believe In Anymore by Temperature Falls features an array of luscious sounds from dark to light. It features a darker sound in the instrumentation with gritty guitar licks and heavy synth riffs. However, the album also features ethereal and lighter tones within the chilled trip-hop beats and light, melodic, yet mysterious vocals.
