Singled Out: Rocket & The Ghost's Come In From The Outside

Today Kiyoshi Matsuyama from Rocket & The Ghost tells us about "Come In From The Outside" from their brand new EP "Come in from the Outside / Albuquerque". Here is the story:

This song was birthed out of an incident. While on the road playing bass for a band, I decided to gamble at the Hollywood Casino in Toledo, Ohio. While in the Casino I got a call from my girlfriend. We were catching up on my trip and the talking started turning into arguing, which then turned into fighting. The fighting got intense; it was a parking lot conversation.

So here I am desperately trying to find the exit of this Casino that is designed to keep you inside and distracted while I'm fighting on the phone with someone who can clearly hear all the commotion around me. I mean there were slot machines, roulette tables, people screaming and crying, but there was no way out. The thing about Casinos is that they don't want you to leave. It was so bizarre. We tried to make the weirdness of the song (especially the synth driven bridge) mimic that frantic noisy exit attempt.

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