Coalfalls materialised in the Ipswich summer of 2019 as an instrumental trio, drifting between ultra-pop, dream-gaze and post-punk realms, forging sculpted layers and swells of effects-drenched sonicscapes.
The outfit delivers structures drawn from in-the-moment explorations with emphasis on balance and interplay between the three instruments. With a geographic base conducive to developing a distinct sense of place, this project is curious, adventurous and altogether dreamy.
Embedded in backgrounds of visual and sound arts, the members of Coalfalls have wandered across projects of shoegaze, drone, dabtronics, cinematic sounds, post-punk and alternative all-sorts.
The year since the band’s inception has been one of significant momentum, gathering a core local following, securing a BEMAC recording grant and being welcomed into the Brisbane-based 4000 Records family. 2020 sees the release of a double single 7” record with accompanying film clips and a swathe of live performances in the South-East. With a gaze cast on wider shores, opportunities and album recording, the energy and forward motion of Coalfalls invites you to share the experience. Meet us at the intersection at midnight.
