Track-By-Track zum neuen Album der Londoner Shoegaze-Band…
Erst kürzlich erschien das zweite Album von THE HISTORY OF APPLE PIE. Hier sind exklusive Kommentare der Band-Mitglieder zu den Songs von Feel Something – im Original und komplett ungebügelt…
This is one of my favourites on the album. When I heard the final demo, I knew this was going to be the first track. When we open the set with it, it really helps sets the mood. Come undone started off as quite an ethereal song when we were first writing it. We left it for a little while, then when we revisited it we added a lot of ’sprinkles‘ and introduced this ongoing cowbell, which gave it a real punch and attitude. Joanna wrote a great bass line for it in the studio too, which gave it tons of groove.
I love the way this song builds up with the piano and drums in the intro and then the guitars and bass kick in and it’s just takes off. Fun to play live and loud.
This one kind of came from me always making fun of saying all 60s records have the bum-ba-ba-bum-bum-ba rhythm. Plus it’s one of our rare songs where the guitar (almost) stops for a bit.
This track to me has an air of “Room On Fire”-era Strokes. I think it’s the sliding bass line and arpeggio guitar lines. It’s got a great chorus which is always really fun to play live. And it’s my favourite guitar solo on the record.
First song we made after I got my Lo-Fi Junky, which is the best thing everrrrr. I really love the rhythm of it and way the breakdown guitar is the lead guitar from the chorus but shifted one beat over. It took some getting used to playing live, like some sort of prog time signature shift, but it’s sooooooo fun!
This is my favourite song on the album. Steph wrote it, but we didn’t really rehearse it much before we recorded it, so it has this chaotic energy to it that I really like. The drum-take was pretty much the first time I’d played it, so it’s a bit haphazard and by no means perfect, but I kind of like it that way.
DON’T YOU WANNA BE MINE?
”DYWBM?” reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino movie, I don’t know why! It wasn’t intentional – it kind of just played out that way. The song starts as this swirling and sexy track with lots of groove and 60s undertones, then turns action packed with hammering organs and lots of wild, chugging guitars. It’s a pretty crazy finale!
This song has a cool scratchy rhythm guitar sound that sits nicely next to Steph’s sweet vocal. Most fun bass line to play live!
I really love playing this song. Really emotive lyrics and really emotive music. Makes me „feel something“… not sure what, but it’s definitely a good feeling.
JUST LIKE THIS
The obligatory album closer. It has a spoken word section in the middle that’s impossible to decipher; but if you can, you win unlimited guest list to any of our gigs forever.
