Singled Out: Strange Karma's America
'America' Started as a riff I was kicking around for a few months, I already had the chorus to it but nothing was in any particular order, It was around the time we were planning our first tour of the US, I remember there being a buzz amongst the band.
One night I was jamming with Marty at his house and started playing the riff, he just started singing along to it 'On a jet plane I'm coming to you California Vegastoo' it was basically just a reflection of what was happening at the time. We worked out where the chorus was to sit around the lyrics, And Marty's Lyrics follow the chorus 'take a chance on me' The bridge started as a different riff altogether and it seemed to fit so well with the song that we just chucked it in.
We then took the song to band and they loved the vibe of it. We decided to include it in our set for the tour and see how it goes down. We had an awesome response to the song and decide to put it on the Debut Album 'Volume 1'
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
