Jonny Falls Over is a duo hailing from London (although both originally from the West Country) playing a distinctive style of electronic-influenced music infused with the sounds of alternative and indie rock. The lineup is Jonny on guitars/keys/vocals/electronics and Alex Lane on drums/samplers. Jonny’s intricate fingerstyle electric guitar and honest vocals are placed amongst electronic textures and the prodigious groove and precision of Alex’s drumming. The duo released their debut EP, Foothills, in Summer 2016 and the EP Warmer Climes is out 7th December 2018.
Growing up on a sheep farm in the West of England, Jonny began producing in his early teens when he built a studio computer from the discarded parts of old family desktops, recording any sounds he could find and playing anything he could lay his hands on to create his music. After moving to London to go to university, he has spent the past decade working with numerous bands, developing his performance and production skills. He currently also writes, produces and performs with live electronic outfit Concrete Disco and as acoustic artist Jung Sun. He has collaborated on various projects with, amongst others, Raymond Antrobus, Simon Mole, Ambreen Razia and Ovalhouse. You can link to all his projects from his website jonny.earth
Also born and raised out West, Alex Lane has played drums since the age of 10. In 2008 he moved to London to study drums at Drumtech (now BIMM) before heading to Herts University to gain a BSc in Audio Engineering/Sound Design. He divides his time between his two passions: playing drums and mixing records. He has mixed music for Yann Dulche, Santino, Lila Swain and Harmon. He has played drums for EatMoreCake, Korda Marshall, Red Kite, You Must Be Ames & d0d0, as well as producing electronica under the name I I I I.
