After going on a brief hiatus from 2013, Swearin’ came back and is better than ever with their new album Fall Into the Sun. It’s almost like they took this time off to take what they were and become that but more confident and innovative than before. Their old sound is still there for the OG fans, simply revamped. On the surface, this album seems almost bright and full of good vibes. Examining it closer you’ll though, a pain only heartbreak could create can be found in between the lines. Turns out, Swearin’s Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride reunited in Fall Into The Sunfollowing their breakup that essentially caused the 2013 hiatus. They switch things up by swapping front-vocals numerous times throughout the album. Allison Crutchfield takes control of “Grow Into a Ghost” and “Untitled (LA)” whereas Kyle Gilbride commands “Stabilize” and heavy counterpart “Dogpile”. With strained vocals and somber lyrics, “Stabilize” grabs at your emotional heartstring. “Hungry for loneliness but the thirst stays; unsated, unbound”. Yikes. Gilbride sings these awfully wry lyrics beautifully. Tracks like “Grow Into a Ghost” speak on how the past impacts the future in a butterfly effect sort of way. With some energetic melodies and great guitar riffs, this track encompasses deeper meanings. Moving on is the focus of the track “Anyway”. Whether it be from a relationship, a friendship, a place, or anything else, this track perpetuates the message that letting go sucks but in this hushed ballad you might find sense of relief if you’re going through the painstaking process yourself. For the original fans, this album is like hitting the gold mine and for those new to Swearin’, it’s a solid introduction, so go give it a listen!
