“Fallen” — Dawn of Stereo 

Subtle harmonica strains lead to light guitar strumming and vocalist Bobby Aguilar’s deep-tissue analysis of personal failure. After each verse details a dilemma, Aguilar concludes that “it doesn’t seem to be why I have fallen.” So bouncy and catchy a refrain seems too cheerful for a song proclaiming “the sky is falling,” and the ensuing brief, uncomplicated guitar solo seems equally inappropriate, until it’s cut short by an off-rhythm drum-fill. But regardless of lyrics, the song’s inherent hookiness transforms it into a sort of celebration, perhaps of the freedom that comes from the fall.
