CloudKid Presents Mickey Valen & neverwaves - Falling On Your Sword
Haunting, compelling, with a bit of dark pop trap, met with biting, sardonic delivery, Mickey Valen once again teams up with neverwaves, following their previous release together, ‘Fumes‘ to share a track that is equal parts bitter and brash, entitled ‘Falling On Your Sword.’ neverwaves asks listeners a few questions before delving into the meaning of the song, answering why it is named as it is.
He says, “At what point do you give up fighting? When do you throw in the towel and just let someone say whatever they need to say? When someone is so drunk with rage that they no longer see reality, only the distortion their wounds have created. Essentially the song is about being in a toxic spiral with someone where there is such a degree of distortion that reality and truth have become optional, blurred. My favourite part is probably the sword sample at the end of each chorus— it’s so on the nose that it becomes something else entirely. It’s a Kill Bill over-the-top sort of moment that brings some levity to some otherwise heavy subject matter.”
