Autumn is a trio consisting of Julie Plante (vocals), Jeff Leyda (bass) and Neil Mckay (guitars), based in the American city of Minneapolis and originated in 1994. After some years of silence, the band-members met up in 2016 and started composing music again, resulting in this Maxi ‘The Fall’ which is released on the still young and fresh label Sett Records.

Style-wise The Fall balances on the thin line between post-punk, gothic rock and ethereal music. The vocal work of Julie being mostly responsible for that. Shoe-gaze guitars provide the first tunes, while reverb and chorus effects dominate this song. Fans of The Cure and Cocteau Twins, but also The Sisters Of Mercy lovers will be able to appreciate this music. A fantastic song that makes one want to wander endlessly around on an obscure smoke-clad floor in a medieval cellar.

The second song on this Maxi is also of high quality. Before and After is made up with the same ingredients as the title song. Perfect blended of vocals, guitars and bass supported by rather modest drumming. Old-school gothic rock of the better kind!

As a bonus, we get a remix of The Fall (Broken RMX) by William Faith, who is in fact the man who produced this gem. The song got a slight future-pop treatment coming with the obligatory electronic fiddling, however without doing much harm to the original song and it’s recognizability. A very danceable version and it’s almost amazing to see how this totally different arrangement works just as well too.

After hearing this we can say, Autumn is back and it can only be a matter of time until a new full-CD is released! And if those songs are of the same quality as this maxi-single, then we can’t wait! So the sooner, the better!

Autumn is een trio (Julie Plante (vocals), Jeff Leyda (bass) en Neil Mckay (guitars)) uit het Amerikaanse Minneapolis, opgericht in 1994.Na een aantal jaren van stilte, vonden de bandlieden elkaar in 2016 terug om samen te musiceren, met dit als resultaat. Hun nieuwe maxi-single The Fall komt uit op het nog jonge label Sett Records.

The Fall balanceert op de grens van postpunk, gothic rock en ethereal. Het vocale werk van Julie zit daar voor een stuk tussen. Shoegaze-gitaren zorgen voor de eerste noten, de reverb en chorus hebben een overgroot aandeel in deze geweldige song. Fans van The Cure en Cocteau Twins, maar ook Sisters-liefhebbers vinden in deze muziek hun gading. Een zalig nummer dat uitnodigt om voorovergebogen rond te zwerven over de obscure, in rook gehulde vloer van een middeleeuwse kelder.

Ook het tweede nummer op deze maxi haalt hetzelfde niveau. Before and After is op dezelfde leest geschoeid als de titelsong. Een perfecte blend van zang, gitaar en bass en ingetogen drumwerk. Oldschool gothic rock van de betere soort.

Als toemaatje krijgen we een remix van The Fall (Broken RMX van William Faith, de man die dit kleinood producete). Het nummer kreeg een future-pop-jasje met wat electronica, zonder de originele herkenbare song te verdringen. Heel dansbaar en geweldig hoe deze totaal andere inkleding ook werkt.

Autumn is terug en zo te horen kan het slechts een kwestie van tijd zijn vooot er een nieuwe full-CD komt. En als die 12 nummers van dezelfde kwaliteit zijn als deze maxi-single, dan mag het.. hoe sneller hoe beter!
