10 Years Week: Day 2 "Focus"

The following story was part of the Day in Rock Report for 5/12/08 - (antiMusic) 10 Years' sophomore album, Division, hits stores this week. Forget what you thought you knew about 10 Years, Division takes them on a different musical journey. We spoke with drummer Brian Vodinh to get the lowdown on his favorite tracks from the album. Here he is with today's song:

Focus - We co-wrote this song with our buddy Dean Deleo. We have a mutual friend who set us up to write together and "Focus" is the result of a couple of days holed up in a Hollywood rehearsal room with Dean.

"Focus" is a love song, plain and simple. We have typically strayed from writing such straight forward lyrics about the emotion of love, but this song just really had a 1970's, Led Zeppelin like vibe that it just felt right.

Originally I had shown Dean a song that I was having trouble finding an ending to. We started working on that song but every idea that started flowing was so amazing that it felt like it needed to be it's own entity. We ended up giving up on finding an ending for that particular song and decided to just start a whole new song from scratch. Next thing you know, "Focus" is what we came up with.

By the way, I ended up finally writing the ending to that other song, it is now the last song on our new record, DIVISION, and is entitled "Proud of You." Preview the album, learn more about the band, grab tour dates and more right here
