We are excited to release our next song, "I Really Like Your Style." This will be the first song we have written with our new guitarist Daniel Clement. It's been a bit of a journey getting this one together.
It started as a completely different song back in 2021 with now only the chorus line remaining the same. Originally I had written a completely different lyric for the verses but they were not working for me on review a year later. So early 2023 we abandoned the old arrangement and began the version we will be releasing.
Isabelle took over writing the lyric for the entire song, and thanks to a lucky moment while we were rehearsing we unveiled a totally new intro for the song. I have been consciously attempting to keep our ideas in a certain tempo and mood in hopes of creating a unified collection of material for a full length release. Well "I Really Like Your Style" has turned into a happier song, with a strong lean into reggae for influence in the chorus. The introduction is a strangely satisfying nod to our trip-hop influenced tracks, with a dramatic chromatic descending string line all suddenly morphing into the main song. It's a trick we haven't attempted before but I think works to great effect.
Our resident graphic artist and all around superior human being Robert Edmonds has created another cover art for the single and we should have it ready for release but end of September. A video must be created but we haven't even started on that yet!
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the recording of this single: Johanna Sö (JoSö World) - violin, Matthew Brain (live jazz drums), Greg Hanberry (congas), Daniel Clement (guitar), Isabelle Dunlop (vocals of course!) with me programming the drums, keys and bass guitar.
