Singled Out: El Sportivo & The Blooz

Today Darron Hollowell of El Sportivo & The Blooz tells us about the song "Breaks My Heart" from their brand new album "Nights & Weekends". Here is the story:

I wrote "Breaks My Heart" sitting on my couch with my acoustic guitar at 10AM after being out late the night before...I wasn't really in a conscious state of mind and I think that allowed the riff, which is fairly simple to just come out.

Sometimes the best things happen when you are slightly hungover and not thinking super clearly. I sort of dismissed the song at first but when my producer Lewis Pesacov heard it he saw potential in it right away.... when we entered the studio the song really came to life, I was still playing with the lyrics and melody when we started recording the song, which we did live in the studio...I had a more subdued melody and vocal approach in mind but the way the band was leaning into the song I ended up singing the verse melody with an octave jump from the first note to the second...I didn't even realize I had done it until I heard the rough mix a month later but it ended up way better then what I originally had so you can thank the Blooz for that one

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the group right here!
