Premiere: Markus Saastamoinen Reveals Captivating Album, ‘Falling Up’

Melbourne-based alternative rocker, Markus Saastomoinen will this week reveal his brilliant new album, Falling Up and today we’re stoked to share with you the very first listen of the 9-track feature.

‘Falling Up,’ is a poignant journey through the highs and lows of love, self-discovery, and redemption. The alternative rock masterpiece encapsulates the transformative power of an extraordinary connection.

Saastamoinen shares, “Falling Up is the story of a man who was lost, lonely, and without self-worth, but was then found and uplifted by the most incredible woman!” The album’s narrative unfolds with the single “The Day That I Met You,” a heartfelt expression of reconnection after years apart and the profound impact this woman has had on the artist’s life.

The tracklist unveils a carefully curated emotional spectrum. From the melancholic introspection in “Sadness” and “Loser” to the uplifting gratitude in “Thank You” and the unabashed celebration of love in “When I Wake Up With You,” Saastamoinen takes listeners on an immersive sonic journey.

‘Falling Up’ is not merely an album; it’s a testament to the power of love, healing, and self-realization. Saastamoinen’s musical prowess, coupled with the album’s thematic depth, promises an unforgettable experience for fans of alternative rock. Be prepared to embark on a musical odyssey that mirrors the ebbs and flows of life itself.
