Bigelf Week: Day 3

(antiMusic) We love Bigelf so much here at antiMusic that we're bringing them back for another artist week! Last time we celebrated the U.S. release of their masterpiece 'Hex,' and we are now pleased to tell you that they have topped themselves with their latest release 'Cheat The Gallows.' which is in stores now. To celebrate this new release, we asked Damon and Ace to share with us the stories behind some of their favorite tracks from the CD. Here they are with today's song "No Parachute"!

Damon: One night after being out late I came home and sat down at the piano, I closed my eyes, took a deep breath and said..."There's no use looking down..." almost the whole song came out on that first attempt. Of course not every word, but close.. the verse, chorus and bride chords. I don't really have a formula for songwriting but this doesn't happen every day. When we added the Mellotron choir(male, female, solo female & boys) to the intro, it captured the complete essence of the lyrics for me. I still get chills when it comes in, love it.

Ace: This is one of my personal favorites on the album. Simple but effective, very melodic, and a nice breather between the heavy rockers on the record. We had a string quartet play on this one, it really added some cool elements to the arrangements and the overall soundscape. This one's about jumping out of an airplane without a parachute... voluntarily.
