Singled Out: MindFlow's Shuffle up and Deal
The way MindFlow writes music does not have a particular method, sometimes a riff dictates what the idea is about, sometimes a bass groove or even a drum pattern can spark each others ideas.
This song in particular was born from a bass line idea that Ricardo Winandy brought to the studio and we played along, jamming, looking where could it take us.
The song came out naturally among all of us, but changes and sugestions may appear even on the last minute, like in the recording sessions, it happened.
Danilo Herbert always writes his vocal melodies, even if we have two or more ideas to choose from, he'll always have an idea of what could work for each part.
Lyricwise we all contribute, this song in particular the lyrics are mine (Rafael Pensado) and it talks about a poker match, a hobby i've been having for the past three years now.
The idea is to try to express a thrill of a big hand and how much self control is important not to show either if you have or don't have a good hand. It's the same in life.
Once the song was recorded, Rodrigo Hidalgo, our guitar player takes it to the next level, mixing, of course he contributed big time with killer riffs and all kinds of sugestions during composition.
Over the years he developed a great talent of mixing and producing, it is very nice to have one of us able to handle that huge responsibility.
Anyways, that is the story of this song, you can hear it on youtube or any social network, this song is very intense and melodic fast paced rock tune.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
