I run the website Higher Plain Music and as part of a proof of concept that will be returning later in 2019, I asked a few musicians to come along and talk about their songs and break down stems. However, as it was an unusual request, I recorded myself explaining how the format would work so that musicians could understand the angle I was coming from.
I had forgotten that I’d uploaded that test episode so here it is below for your enjoyment. I talk through the song Dander, why it came into being and then how the song is constructed with individual instruments, vocal samples and so on. I hope it is interesting!
Sitorimon’s new single “Dander” is released today and is available for free download over at the all new BandCamp website. The lead single is taken from the upcoming album “The Terms & Conditions to Unconditional Love” which features 16 tracks and will be released next Monday. The single also contains a new instrumental track entitled “Epica” which did not make the album.
Sitorimon says “Dander is a particularly personal song for me. It’s like a train of brain spasms that I’ve had through deaths of relationships -in particular where the connection was not there and yet the other party just doesn’t have the guts or balls to do anything about it and I’m trying perhaps too hard to make something work. It creates an endless spiral that drives me utterly mad and shuts others out. Frustration has to pour out somewhere and that’s part of where this song is born from.”
