‘Things Fall Apart’ shows more of the mellow side of Serafin, with crystal clear arpeggios kicking off a melodic slow burner. Whilst it's not as instantly catchy or abrasive as previous ep title tracks, it's light and summery, and adds some depth and colour to the Serafin back catalogue. And that's in no small part due to Ben Fox Smith’s vocals which shine throughout the song, mixing powerful resonance with soft, wavering harmony.
It's a chorus that'll have you humming along even after the first listen and this new-found punch means that, although it’s not as ground-breaking as past releases, this slightly poppier single might just succeed in getting Gareth Gates' fans listening to 'real music'.
