Commercial Break Song Breakdown Part 2:

To give you some more insight into the making of our EP we’re going to be breaking it down song by song and give you some facts and stories about each track:

Part 2: Observations

You may remember this song from the first live jam we put on youtube. Observations was created as this jam and we liked it so much that we didn‘t change much about it and just made some little adjustements for the version that is now on the ep. The idea for the song came from the vocal samples you can hear at the end of it. We recorded some small samples of michelles voice and created a melody with them. It‘s really fun to create a sound like this from scratch. The rest of the song was mainly improvised in the live jam. Even the lyrics were written in 10 minutes or so.

If you want to know how the song began it‘s live, feel free to go watch our first live jam on our youtube channel.

Commercial Break Song Breakdown Part 1

To give you some more insight into the making of our EP we’re going to be breaking it down song by song and give you some facts and stories about each track:

Part 1: Video Game

Video Game was the last song we wrote for the EP but we instantly knew that this would be our first single. There is just something about it that brings together a lot of things that we like, like 80s inspired synth sounds, groovy drums and basslines and lyrics that are inspired by pop culture. The process of writing the song was really fast. It started with the bassline and everything else just came together naturally. Only the mixing of the song took quite a long time to get right. But it was worth the effort and we are really happy with how this song turned out. Filming the music video was also extremely fun as it was basically just us two in a room goofing around in front of a camera. And even though we didn‘t know what we were doing with filming and editing we really enjoy the result of it. We hope you have just as much fun with this song as we had.
