Laura Welsh – Break the Fall

With “Break the Fall,” Laura Welsh bridges the gap between pop and something deeper. The song is catchy and dance-floor ready, but not in the plastic, bubblegum way that so many summer singles are. The video is engaging, keeping us wondering if Welsh is being consumed by a lover’s embrace or by the clutch of an attacker, and how the former can feel like the latter when a relationship is crumbling.
