Anchor & Brail Singled Out Week: Goes Without Saying
Kevin and Micah (the co-production team) sat me down near the end of pre production and told me that did not feel we had a complete record, they needed a few more songs to round out the moment. They wanted an upbeat song in the vain of the others on the record and felt that that would be the missing puzzle piece to the record.
I drove straight home and sat down at my piano, inspiration struck immediately. Realize that inspiration never strikes me; it's more like a slow moving sloth that catches up to me when I sleep. This 'lighting in a bottle' moment just hit that night; I started to play the main melody line on the piano and the chords just followed.
I had the song in delivered to them the next morning and both agreed that it was their favorite song on the record. For me personally it is my favorite song on the record musically. The additional percussion and eerie guitar movements make me want to listen to it over and over.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
