about

False Heights show off their edgy alternative pop/rock sound on their new track Heavy Metal Runaway that drops this Friday the 13th.

The pair fuse sugary-sweet lo-fi vocals with futuristic, pop synths and grunge rock elements for an offbeat and addictive sound that’s both angsty and uplifting. The track’s combination of both retro punk and summery guitar sounds makes ‘Heavy Metal Runaway’ one to remember as they pull off the juxtaposition effortlessly. The duo’s use of descriptive lyricism conjures up thoughts of a dark, mysterious figure with many questions unanswered, beautifully reflected in the instrumentation and melody of the song.

lyrics

I see through your disguise fueled by alcoholic lies that rely on fake alibis
It’s all about control up your sleeve in your soul
You hide behind silk screen eyes
Yeah

Try to catch a glimpse of what you’ve got to give
Or what your determined to hide
Too afraid to try look into your own eyes
For what you might realise

CHORUS
I know it sounds too good to be true
You’re a heavy metal runaway
Dancing in the back of the room

Fake it till you make it baby
There’s something sexy bout
How deeply you’re in denial

I might be prone to temper tantrums sometimes
Drama is the spice in my life
So if you’re into unpredictability
You’re in the right place at the right time

CHORUS
(Try to catch a glimpse of what you’ve got to give)
All dressed in black you’re mysterious yeah
(Too afraid to try look into your own eyes)
No you don’t give a damn
You just take what you can

All the girls they’re turned in your direction
But I see through your love for your reflection

CHORUS x2
(Try to catch a glimpse of what you’ve got to give)
All dressed in black you’re mysterious yeah
(Too afraid to try look into your own eyes)
No you don’t give a damn
You just take what you can
