Singled Out: Recs Of The Flesh
Subliminal / Delusional was the very first song I penned with a second album in mind. It was back in 2008, Sara and I were just out of the pre-production for our debut LP, absolutely satisfied with the tracklisting but somehow still unable to stop messing with new ideas and stuff. And so we were basically piling up riffs and melodies while waiting to start tracking.
I remember walking out of bed after a sleepless night, and plugging my SG straight into the amp at something like 7 am - home alone and totally fuzzy. The moment I came up with the main riff, I knew this had to be the opener to our next album. The song structure was ready in a matter of minutes and so were the lyrics - it was a very natural process, one of those occasions when the track seems to literally materialize itself out of thin air.
Around the period I was obsessing over the Kercher murder and the way mass medias were handling the whole thing. The persons that were found guilty always behaved terribly in front of the cameras, totally careless and seemingly unable to realize the proportions of what had happened. And the cameras loved to indulge. I perceived all of it as a hint to all those destructive influences that play such an important role in our current lifestyles - vanity, violence, voyeurism and what not.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
