Walls Fall Down by Electric High: Review
Life is an uphill battle. It doesn’t matter where you are on your journey; there will always be a series of obstacles for you to overcome and walls for you to break. What counts is that you keep moving forward even when your steps are heavy, which is the idea conveyed by the song “Walls Fall Down.” It is the rock anthem of Electric High, a four-piece hard rock band hailing from Bergen, Norway.
The music is exactly what you would expect it to be musically: ecstatic, invigorating energies with modern productions that wonderfully complement the raw, sultry, and powerful vocals of PV Staff and Olav Iversen. After the electric guitar and drum beat served as the sole introduction to the verse, the intensity gradually ramped up to a gritty, uplifting chorus and a climax bridge. The band plays catch and release so effortlessly with the tension of the song that they easily have your heart in the palm of their hands. It comes at you in waves of unrelenting, violent flow, unwilling to take no for an answer until whatever restraining you are destroyed. Let’s applaud the superb playing of guitarist Marius Mørch, bassist Einride Torvik, drummer Tor Helge Opdahl, and the outstanding mixing of Daniel Birkeland!
“Walls Fall Down” belongs to the brand new eponymous EP, which was published earlier in May 2022. I have no doubt that we will have a great time enjoying their music as their career grows more exciting by the day.
