Info for Age of Entitlement



Age Of Entitlement, the debut album by White Tail Falls and produced by Erland Cooper emerges as one of the most life-affirming, honest, empathetic and heart-stopping records you’ll hear this year – a record which will make you cry like a baby and remind you of the power of music.

Inspired by the earthy honesty of Bon Iver, Kevin Morby and Fleet Foxes it also leans towards the tender moods and sounds of Sun Kil Moon and Sufjan Stevens. Fragile, exquisite and life-affirming, its a record of rare beauty and compassion.

I was thinking about bloodlines and procreation and how we think we've got power over it when the decision is ultimately out of our hands,” explains Irwin. “Over-thinking about the family I'm from and the family I hadn't started and the implications of having kids or not and remembering the love I do have in my life, to go skipping into the apocalypse with. It became a bit of an existential love song.”

‘Disintegrate’ is the second track to be taken from White Tail Falls’ newly announced debut album, Age Of Entitlement, following their debut single ‘Give It Up, Son’, released in October. Climactic and pleading, the track addresses the viewpoint of observers who seek to save someone from the consequences of their actions.

Throughout the rest of the album, White Tail Falls explores an array of evocative lyrical themes, set against a euphoric and immersive sonic palette touching on influences from the worlds of folk, mellow pop and alternative music. Crafting intoxicatingly beautiful soundscapes laden with equally self-reflective and observant lyricism, the writing was informed by the volatility of mental health, dreams becoming spirit-crushing grinds, and an eventual pivot to positivity.

Opening with the fragile, exquisite, life-affirming ‘Body Weight’, a broken angel’s swoon of a song about the threads that life hangs from and how easily they snap, the album moves through the spirit-stirring R&B of ‘Devout’ – inspired by Hippocrates’ idea of the ‘four humors’ – the richly textured title track, led by raw, folk-esque guitar, to the stirring ‘Rome’s Already Fallen’, an exploration of the pivotal moment in a relationship when tempers blow, bruises bloom, things can’t be unsaid and there’s no going back to how things were, set against a swelling blend of orchestra and piano interspersed with auto-tuned vocal accents.

At the end of the journey, Age Of Entitlement emerges as one of the most life-affirming, honest, empathetic and heart-stopping records you’ll hear this year – a record which will make you cry like a baby and remind you of the power of music. A record to imperceptibly pivot lives to the positive, not least Irwin’s. “It’s blown music open for me again and I'm just loving diving in,” he says. “Making this album has changed my life. It’s forced me to confront what I’m made of. I still don’t know how I feel about that.”

Irwin Sparkes
In short, I was born in Reading and grew up in Reading. I plan on dying somewhere else! I am currently based in London… I must have been about fifteen when I first got into music, which seems like a ridiculous age to be wondering, pondering or “pondermentering”, about the future, but you must remember this is before the golden age of Youtube and Xbox 1’s meant you didn’t have to think about anything. So there I was, wondering. School’s career advisors were throwing me unhelpful red-herrings like “become Prime Minister”, or “Chief Egg Inspector” but I knew those high-powered roles weren’t for me. In truth I was having more fun playing every weekend with my band - the god-awfully named “Myst” - than anything else I was doing. If there was a way I could make the band work whilst avoiding real work I was gonna take it and I wasn’t gonna let a sizeable lack of talent stand in my way. Not on my watch. Not on your nelly. Every step of the way I was fortunate enough to have a partner in rhymes: Al Sharland. The first drummer I ever met and also the most recent (I saw him just last Thursday).

After blagging our way onto a soccer scholarship at a university in Indiana, we moved to London to form pop band, The Hoosiers, and bagged a number one album with our debut 'The Hoosiers & The Trick to Life' and a top ten follow up with ‘The Illusion of Safety’. After several years hiatus The Hoosiers are back making a noise in the studio and on the touring circuit with a barrage of new and constantly evolving rock-pop tracks, which The Sunday Times recently cited as “pop perfection”, and who am I to disagree?

After studying Performing Arts on a soccer scholarship at a university in Indiana, Irwin moved to London to form pop band, The Hoosiers, scoring a number one album with their debut ‘The Hoosiers & The Trick to Life’ and a top ten follow up with ‘The Illusion of Safety’. Comfortable collaborating with artists from diverse genres he has written with Dakota, Twinnie, Rick Nowels and Cathy Dennis. Drawn to melodious top-lines and unique angles in lyrics, it’s Irwin’s desire to write music that matters; music that has an identity and helps to establish an artist and set them apart from the crowd. As an artist himself Irwin is involved with writing for London-based art-collective: The Sea & I. Known for producing concerts with a lighting designer, collaborating with London Chamber Brass, London Contemporary Voices choir and the Iskra string quartet they make a cinematic, baroque-pop noise that needs to be seen to be believed. After several years hiatus The Hoosiers are back making a noise in the studio and on the touring circuit with a barrage of new and constantly evolving rock-pop tracks, which The Sunday Times recently cited as “pop perfection”. Amiable and wanting the best for the artist he’s working with Irwin is delighted to be involved with arranging, composing and structuring tracks with producers for projects as well as for sound-tracks. Happy to lend his vocals, guitar, bass guitar and recording skills where necessary.

Irwin was born in Reading and grew up in Reading. He plans on dying somewhere else and is currently based in London.
