Timing is everything. Fallon Cush’s “In the Nick of Time,” from their recently released second album, April, is about the hard work it takes to save and keep a long-term relationship. Reconciliation is a thread throughout April and “In the Nick of Time” represents the heart of the record. The reflective tune, with delicate guitar and a catchy chorus, brims with hope for making things right.

Fallon Cush’s second album, April, is a warm album filled with songs about reconciliation and fresh starts, like the returning sun after a long, cold winter. Recorded, like their self-titled debut, at Linear Recording in Sydney, April has a much different feeling about it. Focusing on rekindling and renewing relationships, the album is a collection of folk and Americana-tinged tunes worthy of Jay Farrar’s repertoire. “The record is really about reconciliation, fresh starts, tearing down walls, and building bridges,” says singer-songwriter Steve Smith.
Fallon Cush wasn’t meant to be a band, or at least not at first. Smith had a few songs centered on a failed relationship and the resulting fall-out. The songs ended up defining Fallon Cush’s warm and emotionally wide-ranging self-titled debut album, which was met with praise from fans and critics alike. Jersey Beat’s Jim Testa said of the album, “Good pop music, a wise man once said, accomplishes the tricky balancing act of being both instantly familiar and yet original…Steve Smith and his mates, manages just that, invoking influences as diverse as Elvis Costello, Squeeze, the Byrds, and early Rod Stewart.”
