With the release of their latest single “Fallen”, Reside vocalist Liam Guinane sits down with HEAVY to discuss the song and happenings within the band.
“The song that originally was the idea for “Fallen” was just a little voice number that I had recorded shortly after the last record The Light That You Saw,” he explained. “I was playing around with this sound that was halfway between what we’ve already done versus where we’re going with the batch of songs that we’re currently putting together. Lyrically it came together a bit later – probably in the last 12 months – but in terms of what we were trying to do with the approach of the music, I know that I have been listening to a lot of different stuff and as a band we’re growing. We’ve done that alternative rock sound that we’re known for and I knew I wanted to integrate some of the other influences into the sound.”
In the full interview Liam discusses “Fallen” in more detail, the accompanying film clip, being a DIY band and the benefits and drawbacks of that, how “Fallen” ties in musically with previous album The Light That You Saw, upcoming music and the direction it will take and more.
