Review: The Marica Frequency - When Things Fall Down

The Marica Frequency is a band from South Wales (UK). All music written and produced by Christopher John Evans and Marisa Frantz. Band lineup constantly changes but the two main members are Christopher John Evans and Marisa Frantz.

When Things Fall Down is comprised of 9 incredible tracks where they use genres, such as Indie Rock and Alternative. The album opens with groovy composition called The Gunslinger which, in my opinion, is a great choice for the album opener. Drums and electric guitars bring vibes of rock bands of the past century. The composition is followed by Break The Seal - slow tune where the band uses strings, which make this song much more epic and interesting. The third track, titled just as the album - When Things Fall Down - starts with electric guitar and additionally with drums: this song literally makes us feel the whole mood of the album. Catchy melodies and powerful chorus will definitely stay in head for a long time. The 6th song on the record, The Way That The Blind Were Led, impressed me with its dynamics. The pleasant vocals and effects make this song an example of awesome modern rock track. Bad Apple, which is one of my favorites from the album, is an easily memorable song: it starts with rock guitars and then developes in upbeat track which will make you even sing along. The acoustically touched in the beginning song The Owl, as well as Saturday Morning, surprises listeners with the contrast of acoustic guitars in comparison to electric. Reflective and meaningful Pass Us By and The Lonely Coracle are the ones that help you to dive deep in thoughts after a hard day.

To sum up, everything in When Things Fall Down comes together in a stream of consciousness style. This is unforgettable journey into the mix of rock music and meaningful lines in one piece.
