Here’s apathy, cheerful isn't it?
This album was originally going to be called “Big, Bold and Beautiful” for the new approach I have decided to take when it comes to music. No more waiting around for ages trying to complete just one tune. No more “is it perfect” or “what if I did this instead”. I've decided to trust my gut and just roll with whatever decision I've made. I wanted to make something big and bold. Something that was inspiring and grand but most importantly. I wanted to feel satisfied, I wanted to feel like I've made something beautiful.
I've been obsessed with making the perfect song for ages. I've always felt as if something has been either wrong or just not good enough. Especially when it has come to something I adore like the song that started this project. I wrote 16 bars of just pads and I liked them a lot, so just like any other musician in their right mind I continued writing and adding parts to that melody. A session turned to ten, then twenty and now I’m sure I've sat at least a two hundred hours if not more just working on that one track.
Eventually I decided that I can’t keep up like that any more. The tune never got any better and my time was just wasted if I didn't do anything with it. So I wrapped it up, I took the song that’s been in the making for 3 years now and I finished it along with every single other project I've been working on for what seems to be an eternity now. All that and I added something new to put the philosophy to the test.
And now, just minutes away from me uploading this Ep I’m not sure how to feel. I've worked on and off on these tunes for 3 years now. They mean the world to me and I’m incredibly proud of myself and them. But on the other hand, I’m kind of underwhelmed. All this work, these late nights and countless headaches have all boiled down to 5 songs and some album art.
Thank you for reading this far.
