Unlike his horror-inspired singles off of FEARWORLD, which unleashed screeching bass and supercharged drops, “Falling” features a sultry, soft-spoken vocal and an uplifting melody. Crankdat (real name Christian Smith) zeroes in on his future bass repertoire, creating a heart-rending fusion between his gritty, gear-inspired bass sounds with a more lush vocal.“It’s been a while since I’ve done some pretty stuff,” Smith wrote to his socials.
Similar to the beautifully crafted single, “Nothing Matters” of his GEARWORLD VOL. 1 EP, Smith carried a sorrowful tone throughout the track with impassioned, longing lyrics. Though fans have seen this side of Smith in small doses throughout his career, the multi-faceted producer seems to be pushing himself to new heights and experimenting with more vocal-based tracks.
“Falling” leaves listeners yearning for more as they anticipate the next chapter in Smith’s creative journey.
