Premiere: Saint Pepsi finds escape in new ‘Fall Harder’ video

Saint Pepsi finds escape in new ‘Fall Harder’ video

New clip from Ryan DeRobertis finds love in bloom.

‘Fall Harder’ is the first “proper” song Ryan DeRobertis ever wrote for Saint Pepsi - his first gung-ho attempt at transferring his gorgeous early recordings into full-blown songwriting. Funk-lined but equally dosed up on romance, it formed part of a single earlier this year on Carpark Records with ‘Fiona Coyne’.

Next month sees DeRobertis arriving in Europe for his first ever headline tour on these shores. Ahead of those shows, he’s unveiled the video for ‘Fall Harder’, which documents the heady ins and outs of blooming and struggling relationships from across the ages. What it appears to ignore, however, is the instant crush effect Saint Pepsi seems to be getting for his early tracks, making next month’s run one of 2014’s most in demand UK debuts.

DIY’s got the first play of ‘Fall Harder’ below. See all Saint Pepsi’s remaining US and European 2014 dates.
