Back in late September, the rising stars of Why Don’t We made their explosive landing with the track, ‘Fallin’ (Adrenaline)’. This marked the band’s first release release following their eight-month hiatus that began in early 2020.
For starters, ‘Fallin’ (Adrenaline)’ opens with an intriguing cocktail of drums and snaps. The track is then carried forward by the band’s dreamy harmonies, boasting of their vibrant tones. So, what makes ‘Fallin’ (Adrenaline)’ so much more than your average, gooey pop song?
On one hand, it’s certainly the impressive production elements, infused with a punk-rock flavour, that give the song an extra push. And on the other hand, it’s without a doubt the band’s vocal prowess, that sculpts this track into the groovy, auditory treat it is.
Cheeky and charming, the songwriting on this track sees Why Don’t We explore the uncertainties and thrills that arrive with a new love. The boys chose to dive headfirst, with careless abandon, hoping to be swept by the tide of this exciting new relationship. The lyrics allow for a better understanding, take a look:
Make me a promise, tell me you’ll stay with me
If I’m bein’ honest, I don’t know where this leads
Oh, baby, I can feel the rush of adrenaline
I’m not scared to jump if you want to
Let’s just fall in love for the hell of it
Maybе we’ll just keep fallin’
Why Don’t We also put out a visualizer for this track and it arrives with a string of high-intensity dream-like sequences. From crawling out of upturned cars, and floating mid-air in ghostly rooms to plummeting from tall towers – the boys do it all.
Well, Why Don’t We certainly have a ton of gems up their sleeve and we can’t wait to unearth more of them!
