Wrathschild Make Epic ’80s Movie Pop With Debut Single “Fall Into Love”: Listen


They want the real thing

Simon Curtis and Ro Danishei have been toiling as part of the Internet-driven pop underground for a half-decade, and while they’ve enjoyed a decent bit of success on their own — Curtis with two solo full-lengths, Danishei as a songwriter and former member of girl group Candy Coated Chaos — some of their best work has sprung from their collaboration. Capitalizing on that chemistry, the duo is making their strongest push yet for mainstream recognition as Wrathschild; the first fruit of their blossoming partnership is new single “Fall Into Love.”

The first product of two years’ worth of sessions with producer Ray Reich, “Fall Into Love” shines on the strength of its vocal performances, with Curtis’ agile, powerful tenor darting around Danishei’s sneering take. Their investment in the material, and the gravity of the song’s sound, makes uncovering the wink at its heart that much funnier: once you hear them belting, “I want the real thing / Just like an ‘80s movie,” there’s no going back.
