Fallen from the Sky are a five piece band from Boca Raton, Florida. The band plays a style of melodic punk/hardcore with an aggressive edge reminiscent of Friends, Lies, and the End of the World-era Reach the Sky or The Movielife's Forty Hour Train Back to Penn. At one time or another, those bands had defined a heavier sound in their careers, before moving onto a much more melodic sound. Fallen from the Sky's sound seems to take a cue from the more accessible ends of those bands.
This six song EP features solid drumming, with the opening track "Benson Hurst" even featuring some simple double bass work in the breakdown. Combine the drumming with the steady basslines running through the songs, and you'll see that Fallen from the Sky have in their ranks one hell of a rhythm section. Accompanying this, guitarists Ky Morland and Eric Jazvac provide impressive moments of guitar work in the form of simple solos or straight up catchy riffs. Singer Ryan Loughney sings these songs with a melodic, yet gruff voice that, while not wholly unique, is still strong enough to stand on its own.
Lyrically, the subject matter within might not be the freshest of territories, touching on themes of betrayal via the opposite sex, and relationships lost. Despite that, the lyrics show room for growth, and don't come off as petty, immature, or completely contrived.
Tune out the World is a solid first effort from this young band. This record may not make it into your top artists on Audioscrobbler quite yet, but give Fallen from the Sky some time. They'll win you over soon enough.
