May Fall, from Israel, isn’t content to be a nameless face in the crowd. Rather he has turned to music as his way of relieving his uneasiness with the presumptive patterns and expectations of society.
His new single, ‘Same Code’ addresses this and his lyrics express the problems our society experiences, laid on top of a synth-led track filled with funky beats, chunky bass lines and strong melodies.
May Fall expresses how everyone is a prisoner of their own ambitions or lack of the same. His aim is not to criticise humanity, but rather to wake us up to think of the bigger picture, and to see that we are the change.
‘Same Code’ comes with a video which is a brilliant work of art directed by Yuval Leizerman, who by way of a combined animation and lyric video. It’s a gorgeously coloured video which reminds us of ‘Tron’, with its mechanised routine of faceless animations, going through the motions of their everyday lives. The message is that “everyone shares the same code” – the routine never changes – resources are invariably consumed, all of us are equally doomed. “Everyone fills their void with some other lies they’re told.”
