CBC Music: ‘Falling Back,’ Tafari Anthony 

Tafari Anthony is a staple in the Toronto music scene, having performed, written and produced for artists like Tanika Charles, the Fretless and most recently contributing background vocals to drag queen Priyanka’s SYNTH-featured single, “Bad Bitches Don’t Cry.” Now, almost three years after his Juno-nominated EP The Way You See Me, Anthony is back with an infectious pop track, “Falling Back.” Kicking off with airy keys and handclaps, “Falling Back” builds into a propulsive rush as Anthony sings about the push-and-pull of a relationship where “I’d sacrifice pretty well anything for just a moment of bliss… even though it rarely came,” as he described in a press statement. Adrenaline and hope keep pulling Anthony back in, and it’s easy to hear and feel how enticing that all is on “Falling Back.” — Melody Lau
