Meanwhile here’s some more new music from Deathline. Another rough demo, showing how our aesthetic has become quite plastic
Not really liking what I see. Not April, all fool. Will be back soon with thoughts
Sorry for the last couple of posts. I’m fed up.
To cheer myself up, I did some work mixing a demo of a new song we’ve been working on for a while.
Making music is the only time things seem to make sense for me.
We’re deliberately investigating a very different series of aesthetics with the new material. None of the new songs sound at all similar to each other - many are improvisational, some verging on jazz metal, others very psych. Yet, this is probably the most “radical” one - it sounds ultra conservative is why.
We had this idea to do a 60s style vocal duet in the vein of Frank and Nancy’s Something Stupid or even Serge and Brigitte’s Bonnie and Clyde. Our friend Joey from Suicide Party and ELECTRA COMPLEX has a beautiful dark baritone voice and he will sing one part, a la Scott Walker, while regular Deathline lead Jennie will be the Nico-esque chanteuse.
I see this having a full string and brass backing. This is a really rough demo. I’m playing the acoustic pretty badly but hopefully you will get the idea.
The song is called Saturday Night - lyrics are incomplete but it involves “getting off our faces on a saturday night” and one half of the narrating couple dying. I guess it’s corny, sort of Last Dance by The Raveonettes with whom we’re endlessly and lazily compared.
Maybe it’s more like that awful version of Iggy Pop’s Tonight that Bowie and Tina Turner did, completely stripping out the intro that showed it was the last words of the narrator to his lover, dying from an overdose.
I’m morbid tonight
I was about to post this on Facebook - I’d typed it into my status box and was about to press “post” - then I realised Tumblr was the more correct place for it.
I have a stinking cold and carpal tunnel and am feeling a bit fed up. You?
