When My Authorities Fall was a Latvian / band from Rīga, Latvia.

The music employs good dynamics and falls somewhere between contemporary and classic '90s . The dual male vocals really drive this music. The vocals blend slightly off key higher pitched singing with a heavier, lower pitched screaming.

When My Authorities lyrics range from personal struggle in the world of communicating images to direct critiques of spectacular society, state fascism and commodity driven lifestyles. Most of their lyrics are in Latvian and English with explanations in both languages. The songs tackle border issues (which is making serious headlines in the states right now), addictions, and the possibilities of living autonomously. The translations and explanations are exact, which is always helpful.

Years active from 2002 till 2006.
