Falling Over is an incredibly stylish country single with a fresh and spacious modern day twist. Sarah Morris’ performance offers the softness and emotion of a delicate yet experienced leading voice, and the way in which this particular song develops allows those qualities to really shine brightly.
The structure of this song presents a number of changes throughout that come as quite refreshing and notably unpredictable. There are moments of complete calm, instrumental minimalism, vocal intimacy – where your focus is entirely on the lyrics and the honesty of the writing. Then in contrast, there are rising moments of intensity, sudden shifts in melody, vibrant bursts of instrumentation that are matched and supported by the singer’s flawless ability to perform at either end of the spectrum.
It’s a clever and easy to enjoy song, the rhythm and organic stringed instrument sound is captivating and atmospheric in itself, adding immensely to all of this though is the strength and character of the leading artist’s performance. This is far from just another country song, there’s more to it and in fact the genre of the release comes second to the feeling the music offers up to its audiences.
There’s a really good sense of balance within the release, and that makes it work well. The crucial elements of songwriting and composition have been incorporated, so the sound is effective – professional, crisp, warm, smooth, enjoyable. On top of this though, there are just enough flickers of individuality and flair to make it really stand out – it becomes instantly memorable, recognisable. The Sarah Morris sound is one that is likely to draw listeners in from all musical preferences – for the skill, the style, the enjoyment. Hopefully it keeps them coming back again and again for future releases and live shows.
