Before you ask, no this isn’t a cover of a song by a certain Canadian band. What it is, however, is a good example of what this project embodies. It’s is definitely a “sketch” of a song. Now, don’t get me wrong, it is a full song that can be listened to, but I don’t believe the concept of the song is fully formed yet. There are bits I like, for instance the dirty, drunk electric guitar and the chug of “it’s all been done” in the chorus, but overall I believe that if this song makes the cut for the album, it will mutate quite a bit both sonically and lyrically.
This song also incorporates some new tricks as well as a few technological advancements. For starters it changes key not once, but twice (A major > G major in the chorus, then to E major for the bridge). I also experimented with the song structure to make it shorter. Finally, incorporates a new drum program as well as a new mic for the electric and bass.
That’s all for now. See you next week!
