Singled Out: Oh No Fiasco's Stand In Lover
The musical idea actually happened after a writing session one afternoon. We were all just lounging around, some of us getting ready to leave for the night, and Seth started with this sort of minor tapping riff. We all got up and went right back to our instruments and hammered out the core essentials of the song in about an hour and a half. It was one of the first songs we wrote that gave more of a sexy dance ambiance, and we wanted to create the lyrical content around the same energy that we had felt with the music.
The lyrics portray a very independent and sensual individual who is out to have a good time, and follows her through the course of the evening. It's the epitome of sensuality and ultimately sexuality, and describes the transience of both.
I think that the ebb and flow of the music builds a fun yet dark and ominous canvas for the lyrics to paint over. The song takes you for a journey and tugs at your emotions in a number of ways.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
