Koncrete Kite Singled Out Week: Banana Bread

We recently featured a Singled Out from Koncrete Kite to celebrate the release of their latest album "Full of Bull." Since the album covers so much musical territory we wanted to learn about more songs from the album. Today singer/guitarist Joe Bove tells us about the song "Banana Bread". Here is the story: Have a slice of "Banana Bread".

This song was a lot of fun to write. I was a huge Zeppelin fan growing up and Jimmy Page certainly had a big influence on my style of writing as a guitarist. That stated, during the creation of this song, I was heavily into the Beatles too, and I did my best to channel my inner John Lennon. Think "Bulldog" meets "Ten Years Gone".

The thought process behind the development of this song was simple. I wanted to write a song about someone who experienced a bad night of intoxication. Not in the event that they drank too much and made a fool of themselves, or even for something they did and regretted in the morning. No, this was specifically for a person who overindulged (perhaps innocently on Uncle Charlie's baked goods?) and didn't realize at the time - nor did he become aware of the damage he caused to himself - until awoken from his hallucinatory dreams hours later.

The perspective of the overlapping melodies would be from the voices in your head; sort of playing tug of war with your psyche. On one hand, you're startled from your dreams and you can't fully understand why? So you try reasoning with yourself…. yet nothing makes any sense. Then you get this moment of clarity and everything feels comfortable again, but remember, you over indulged (damn you, Uncle Charlie!) You're in for long night. After this internal struggle of mind over matter, you survive the ordeal, praying to never experience it again.

To pull this off musically, I had to find odd fitting chords that easily blended to make a peaceful melody. Acoustic guitars were demanded for the internal struggle. The moments of clarity would kick in the screaming riff that only a Les Paul could pull off demanding your attention. Rich did a wonderful job of helping with the lyrics and melody for this section. The ending crescendo was the blissful return to normalcy achieved with the full orchestra of the band joyously playing out to fade away.

To my surprise, this song has become one of the more popular tunes received by our fans and certainly one we enjoy playing as a band. I thank you John and Jimmy for your inspiration. For the rest of you, sit back, feed into the mellow vibe, and let your imagination run wild. I know mine did!

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