We are excited to finally release a new song. We wrote this one over the summer, it was born from the cowbell pattern we'd originally written for another song. That one kinda ran out of steam and was abandoned. The Bolsheviks was created after Isabelle suggested muting the guitar parts on the other track. Suddenly everything opened up and we had a fresh idea. I was just fooling around with a keyboard line and the melody instantly came out. At that point we both knew the old idea was done and a completely new song idea was in its place.
Lyrically it's an interesting combination between us, with Isabelle handling the refrain and me taking on the bridge. We've played at this kind of thing before but it was a lot of fun to come up with the "Dont" section. Maybe it's my subconscious trying to encapsulate the world of facebook and social media in a song; or maybe not.
Anyway, very pleased to share this today. It feels like a fresh start for Combine the Victorious, a little more direct and minimalist than anything we'd done previously. We'd love to hear what you think, so please leave us a message after you've had a chance to listen.
