The FALL PEOPLE
Ambient Electronic Music
"The Fall People" is a dark alternative music project with Megumi and Kelly Rain. The Tokyo based duo explore music from the edges of their dreams. From darkwave to dream pop and ambient, the project has no fixed genre. Instead they explore what inspires them and what their imaginations bring to life.
Founded in 2016, the Tokyo based project began as an ambient project and quickly spread into new genres. The band is heavily inspired by the 4AD period of music in the late 1980s where genre was set aside in favor of musical freedom and authenticity.
Kelly comes to the band from Ninth Circle (Ivy Records Seattle) a darkwave and gothic project as well as a founding member of the Silk Road fusion project "Rain In Eden."
Megumi comes from a long background in traditional Japanese music and as a founding member of the Silk Road fusion project Rain In Eden.

Kelly Rain - Composition, synths, vocals, guitar, acoustic instruments and production.
