Charlotte OC’s new single Falling for You is a masterful marriage between ambient indie rock and neo-funk, with clean palm-muted guitar riffs and a rock-solid groove coming from both genres. The entire song has a particularly relaxing rhythm to it that’s carefully constructed through uniformity, control, and an almost necessary variation. This variation is evident in the pre-chorus and the atmospherically silent bridge. The pre-chorus breaks the uniform rhythm with no backbeat on the drums, as her lyrics indicate the subject taking control. That said, every variation ends with her getting right back to the original rhythm – which perhaps gives us a glimmer of hope, even in the face of losing control.
