Singled Out: Morglbl

Today Christophe Godin from Morglbl tells us about the song "Gnocchis on the Block," the opening track of their brand new album "Brutal Romance," which was released this week. Here is the story:

"Gnocchie on the block is representative of what Mörglbl's style has been for 15 bloody years : a mix of anything with no boundaries! The groovy intro featuring a cheesy bass solo turns into the main riff, full of guitars on steroids !

The melody of the theme has a cartoonesque vibe, and it's supposed to be not too serious. I try to make it a little different on each verse adding some funny licks and grotesque variations here and there.

We wanted this song to be a sum up of most of the styles we like to incorporate in Mörglbl's universe. That song, in a way, is a good introduction to our music for those not really knowing what our "jazz for the deaf" label stands for. I remember being asked by this guy on US radio about how I would describe our music, and I replied "this is just jazz for deaf people !". That song proves how much sense this makes I guess !
Actually, there are heavy riffs, jazzy chords, groovy patterns, cartoon inspired sections, and a long improvised guitar solo.

The song builds up to an apocalyptic end, with very heavy guitars and double bass drum sequences!

What I love about that song, and most of Brütal Römance in general, is that we achieved a goal: when you listen to that album, you never really know whether it's serious or not. We hopefully found the right balance in between playing seriously a not so serious music !"
