Singled Out: Reach's Pins and Needles

Today Reach frontman Joel Monet tells us about the song "Pins and Needles" from their brand new EP "Patterns in Static". Here is the story:

Pins and Needles began as almost an R&B song with no guitars or acoustic drums. As with most of our better material, it basically wrote itself in a matter of a couple hours.

I (Joel) had the basic lyrical concept and melody already in my head and just laid down some keys and drum samples to get the idea fleshed out. It wasn't until a few months later that I transcribed the guitar parts and Christian wrote the squealy guitar layers over the top.

I've heard of a lot of players who get some of their best ideas from playing other instruments. This was definitely one of those cases.

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