Little Particular person
That is one in every of my favorite songs of all time. It is from a weird, lovely Charlie Kauffman movie ‘Synecdoche, New York’ and it is written by Jon Brion. The form of music the place you are by no means the identical after listening to it. I might at all times needed to do a model of it however saved placing it off, after which with this EP, I believed, sufficient’s sufficient.
A music in regards to the notion of discovering ‘real love’, and being uncertain but persistently and annoyingly hopeful. It is a music that type of speaks to your future lover with equal elements cynicism and soppiness. Type of like a Disney movie written by a cynic?
I initially had this as a form of piano interlude with no phrases, however the extra I might play it, the extra the music began popping out with it. It grew to become an ode to somebody who’s there for you and has been there all alongside. I feel it tries to seize that type of eureka second of when your love for somebody reveals itself to you.
This one’s a music in regards to the form of unusual emotional relationships we will kind with objects and place and the way fragile happiness may be amongst every little thing. Objects and locations could make us really feel good, unusual or empty inside, I feel, and it is form of talking to that. It was a whole lot of enjoyable making this one, and I owe lots to Rado and Ben who produced it.. and like to Dave Okumu who performed the bass line goals are made from.
Leather-based Sporting AA
It is a music in regards to the form of all-encompassing horrible love, the place you are sucked into feeling one thing you do not essentially wish to really feel about somebody you do not essentially wish to really feel it for. However you do, and that is that. Essentially the most teenage angst I’ve put right into a music in a very long time.
I made this one across the time of Krystal… it is a music about that stage of grief the place the perfect a part of your day is the three seconds you get up and do not keep in mind every little thing. This one most likely took the shortest period of time to make, and I form of did not mess with it lots.. every little thing was form of shoddy first take. I feel I’ve the softest spot for this one out of all of them.
