Tenspoke Indies Week: Lights Out
Funny story about "Lights Out." Josh had this really great AC/DC-like riff, which you now hear in the song. But when he first played it, the band heard it in a different timing than he was intending. It's like when you catch a part of a song at the wrong moment and it sounds backwards or wrong. Long story short, the basic difference was a half beat of time that made it sound completely different.
The lyrics for this one were really easy. They basically came to me as we were playing it, which I love. I usually have a wrestling match with words to find what I want to say, so this time was different. I had had the main title written down on a piece of notebook paper for years as a cool line to someday use. I don't know why my brain thought it should go in this song, but it fit perfectly. There's definitely a bit of sexual tension in the lyrics. I love the sound of this one on the record.
