Bootleg Rascal Shares New Hip Hop Single ‘Falling Star‘ Featuring Saint Lane, The Last track from their EP.
Distorted kick drums are well complemented by off-beat tribal percussive hits, while classic Heldens electro bass wobbles and warps a pleasing melody.
‘Falling Star’ is a slow burning slice of sophisticated hip hop that maintains an unwavering beat and groove throughout its entirety. The track features rising stars Saint Lane on the second verse with his effortlessly executed cadences, and A.GIRL on back-up vocals with her smooth and sultry brand of R&B.
“We’re stoked to finally work with some of our good friends Lane and Angel,” says frontman Carlos Lara. “’Falling Star’ is one of our favourite tracks from the record, so to have them come in and lay down their parts is really special to us. The track itself is a metaphor I coined for when you’re smitten by someone you’ve just met, but it eventually all just fizzles out. I’m a hopeless romantic, so if I meet someone I click with, I like to start exploring whether there’s a legit connection or not. Sadly, sometimes the more you get to know the person, you realise they’re not right for you. Just like a falling star, it’s beautiful and exciting, but over really quickly.” He continues.
Gold Coast-based New Zealand born rapper Saint Lane burst onto the scene in 2019, picking up praise from the likes of triple j, The Needle Drop, NME, The Guardian, GQ, Billboard and Beats 1 with Briggs. He’s also traversed the country, sharing stages with Lime Cordiale, JID and Bootleg Rascal.
Multiple tracks have been added to Spotify and Apple Music playlists, high rotation on triple j and they’ve performed on the station’s esteemed ‘Like a Version’ segment.

They’ve also regularly appeared on major Australian festivals including Falls Festival, The Big Pineapple Festival, Lost Paradise, Hills are Alive, Festival of the Sun and Party in the Paddock.
