Rowan Oak – “Falsewall”

Rowan Oak are an under-the-radar Charleston band who caught our ear with their newest single, “Falsewall”, released on January 31st. Rowan Oak is led by South Carolina native Cory Cromer, who grew up in a small town near Aiken county. He’s been in Charleston for two years, and releasing music with Rowan Oak since 2016. He also writes and performs as a solo artist.

Falsewall is about two people who pretend they don’t love each other,” Cory says. “It’s a ballad of bad faith.”

According to Cory, Rowan Oak is working on a new album that will include “Falsewall” along with the previously-released “Make It Right”. The band hopes to release the new album this summer, with a tour around South Carolina and Georgia to follow.

“The album has a definite concept behind it,” Cory explains. “I want it to feel as if
it’s a dream. A dream of floating in the middle of the ocean. But with more of a narrative than that. Everything will seem vague but you’ll get the big picture when you step back..hopefully.”
