Singled Out: WASI's Gets Me Everytime

Today Merilou "Cosmo" Salazar and Jessie Meehan from the riot pop group WASI tells us about the song "Gets Me Everytime" which comes from their brand new EP "Bleed Pop". Here is the story:

We wrote Gets Me Everytime to define the pressure we feel as artists trying to do our thing in a place that tells us what to do otherwise. The lyrics are basically anxiety driven with a stream of consciousness of two inner voices battling each other to be heard. The situations where people told us we're not good enough for this or that inspired this song.

When we first demo'd it, it came out completely different from what we were hoping to portray. We ended up scrapping the majority of it, picked up an acoustic guitar and started from the beginning with the melody. We were listening to a lot of Icona Pop at the time, so I think there's a huge influence of their melodies in there.

That super simple guitar riff you hear in the pre-chorus and outro became a pretty vital part of the song. That along with the verse melody are a couple of the parts we kept from it's original form after we started from scratch.

A recurring theme on this EP are self-defining and empowering moments that are driven by optimistic attitude on even the darkest points. Things always end up getting better, and even the hardest times just add to our character.

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