Fresh off their performance with The National at this year’s Homecoming Festival, Cincinnati experimental-pop band A Delicate Motor has a released a new music video for their single “Fall Out.” Premiering with CityBeat, the track is from their upcoming album Fellover My Own, which is set to be released on June 29th via SofaBurn Records. Partway through the song, you can hear the sounds of a bicycle, which belonged to the deceased childhood friend of vocalist and sole composer Adam Petersen. As such, it’s one of the most intimate and introspective tracks on the album, and the video offers an almost therapeutic accompaniment.
“‘Fall Out’ is a gentle reminder to live with ease and not to be burdened by personal vices, habits and triggers,” says Petersen. “Although I live with fears and traumas, I encourage myself to fall out from harmful patterns of thought and feeling in order to heal. The message in ‘Fall Out’ is really a microcosm of this entire album of music.“
Originally a solo, loop-based songwriting effort from Petersen, A Delicate Motor expanded to a full band last year for the creation of Fellover My Own. The record is an invitation to fall in love with who you are becoming. The messages here intend to relieve the listener from the paradox of falling over one’s own devices and instead begin to move with conscious choosing.
Have gratitude for your struggles, your learnings. Misstep in stride, generate tolerance, grow light. We all inevitably find our way.
