Singled Out: Three Legged Fox's Let You Down
Sometime during Spring of 2010 which was the early demo period of this new album, Kyle and I sat in our home-studio not really sure about which direction to go. We might have had three or four songs pretty figured out by then, and we were ready to start on something new. And I remember we specifically said, 'Let's dumb it down musically speaking, let's not outsmart ourselves here.' And for that day, that's what we did. I remember the verse lyrics coming really easily, which I can't say, is always the case. It was really just about looking up at someone and being completely amazed at their entire being, their poise, and their grace. Something I think everybody can relate to: a certain person in your life to whom you have pure admiration.
I had absolutely no chorus on that first day. Kyle called me the next afternoon and played me the chorus he had written over the phone. It was great, it fit perfectly.
The other thing worth noting is how pleasant that first demo was. In two days we had built a song that felt strong and sounded great. And we spent the next ten months trying to destroy it. Not on purpose of course, but that's what was happening. We re-structured, and added parts, and took parts out, re-wrote guitar lines…I mean we literally tried to run this simple song into the ground. But luckily we were able to realize that. We put it away for a while, and I think we came back to its simplicity. Thankfully. I love the way it came out.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
