Have you ever been in a relationship where things get away from you? Have you ever said something wrong to the right person, but know that you can move past it? This song is for you.
A re-imagining of our single, “Straight from the Heart,” this new version explores love – both the exciting and mundane – and the compromise and empathy needed to sustain any relationship. Skye Wallace is featured on this recording, providing sublime vocals, as both a lead singer and in harmony with us. We wanted to evoke the feeling of knowing that the little things in a relationship are ultimately there to teach us about the importance of love and partnership.
The recording experience stemmed from a snippet of a demo that Tom had been working with. He was struggling to write melody and lyrics to it, but with a few chord modifications, adapted the beat to “Straight From the Heart.” Over the next few weeks, the rest of us came over individually to contribute to the tune, whether it was arrangement ideas, keyboard parts or backup vocals. Finally, Skye came in for a few hours to sing on the track. The entirety of “Straight From the Heart” was recorded at home using a combination of live instruments and samples.
