INDIE ROCK ARTIST HAVENS KICKS OFF THE AUTUMN SEASON WITH HIS BRAND NEW SINGLE “FALL” RECORDED WITH AWARD-WINNING ARKELLS DRUMMER, TIM OXFORD

A day before the official start to the crisp autumn season, indie/alternative rock artist Havens drops his second single of the year, aptly titled Fall, recorded with gold record, award-winning Canadian musician Tim Oxford of the Arkells on the drums.

Fall is a song I wrote about the monotony and stresses of dating in the modern age,” says Havens. “Sometimes it feels impossible to find the right person, and it can cause us to agonize and blame ourselves when it doesn’t work out quite as easily as we sometimes naively expect it should.”

With baritone vocals, shimmering jangly guitars and synths, a bouncy bass line laid down by producer Ian Madden, and a ‘60s-inspired drum beat from the Arkells’ own Tim Oxford, Fall tells its story in a fun, lighthearted way that makes for a catchy indie-rock jam.

Fall is Havens’ sophomore single release this year, following the success of his recent hit, Peace In Darkness. Peace in Darkness, yet another collaboration with Ian Madden and Arkells’ drummer Tim Oxford, is an ode to the classic love story with a dance-rock feel. It has garnered over 53,000 streams on Spotify and has garnered almost over 1 million media impressions.

Havens released his 2017 debut EP, Daybreak, which received positive reviews and has been featured in a number of different blogs including Indie-Bandcamp and Narrows Media. 2018 led to collaborations with producer Ian Madden and Juno award-winning drummer Tim Oxford on his two released singles, Peace In Darkness and Fall.
