Singled Out: CrashScene

Today Jacen Ekstroms and Troy Healy from CrashScene tell us about "I Fall Apart" and "Don't Tell Me What To Do" from their new self-titled album. Frontman Jacen Ekstroms starts us off with the current single "I Fall Apart". Here is the story:

T-Roy went in to the studio early in the day with Jason Darr ( producer) and showed him the guitar riffs and song idea he had. When I showed up later in the day they were working on the chorus, and as fate would have it I had been working on a chorus and some lyrics for another song. The second I heard what they already had I knew this chorus idea I had would work with this song.

The song I Fall Apart is about a relationship that ends abruptly without one of the parties being emotionally ready for it to end, either because of infidelity or circumstance and for that reason one of them have a hard time getting over it. All it takes is seeing that other person out at a club or a Facebook post about them or someone letting you know what they have been doing to make you relapse and puts you back in the messed up state you were in when the relationship ended, like another personality. And as everyone knows the only way to heal a broken heart is time. It will get easier and easier until you no longer "Fall Apart" when their name is on your heart .....

Now guitarist Troy Healy tells us about "Don't Tell Me What To Do":

This song I believe was the identifying moment when Jacen and myself realized that we both jell well together and really compliment each others writing style. This was our first song together. Jacen already had a plethora of songs ready for the record. I wrote the guitar parts in California and then flew to Vancouver Canada to start tracking. Jacen happened to be flying into Vancouver from a Bif Naked tour, so he came straight from the airport to the studio. We started to write the vocal parts and it was going great but the pre-chorus needed some loving. It just wasn't coming together, so we decided to do a complete turn around and came up with that awesome hook. That was a defining moment for that song, and it made all the difference in giving it that creepy crazy out of control vibe that we were looking for right into that big chorus. I Love those moments!

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you check out the video fro I Fall Apart right here!
