Falls, ‘Let in the Light’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
Melinda Kirwin and Simon Rudston-Brown, together known as the Australian duo Falls, are revealing their jaw-droppingly beautiful music video for "Let in the Light" exclusively on the Boot. If you're itching for some gorgeous scenery and equally stunning music, be sure to watch this clip.
"Let in the Light" really comes to life in its music video, which was directed by Maximilla Lukacs, who has worked with artists such as Courtney Love and First Aid Kit; the clip evokes feelings of aching loneliness, loss, fear, beauty and hope. Press play above to watch it.
Kirwin and Rudston-Brown met at the Conservatorium of Music in Sydney, Australia. They began writing and performing together, released their debut EP Hollywood in 2012 and even dated for a bit. Then, they signed with Verve Records and moved to the U.S. -- and "Let in the Light" pays tribute to that perilous time in their lives. The duo wrote the tune a couple of weeks after moving from Sydney to Los Angeles, Calif.
“I guess the reality of what we had done was starting to sink in,” Kirwin says. "It’s a very personal song. While it’s about the sadness and insecurity that can plague all of us, I guess, ultimately, it’s about finding hope in the darkest times.”
The music video is epic in its scenery, featuring landscapes of breathtaking mountains, soft light and a brilliant sunset. The clip has both a storyline and a rather abstract feel: The duo is shown fighting and frustrated with one another, and also interspersed are artistic individual shots of Kirwin and Rudston-Brown, which lend to the dreamy quality of the song.
"Let in the Light" is from Falls' full-length debut record, Omaha, which was released on Oct. 2 on Verve. More information on purchasing the album is available on FallsOfficial.com.
