Lowlife
This one is a little different, it's gonna be the last song on our EP. It's a bit more poppy sounding. I wrote this with our producer in November 2020. I wanted it to be structured kind of like my personality: it's a very heavy and sad subject, but the beginning melody is bouncy and poppy because I always take things as a joke, then the bridge brings in the heavy rock which winds down to a very soft part, which represents when I'm alone and the full weight of the subject hits me. Then the ending explodes, with the vocals being almost angry, as this subject is very hard for me to accept and deal with. And the ending gang vocals bring it back to a joke, because ultimately that's how I look at life. As a joke. And because this was recorded during COVID, the gang vocals are just my producer and I doing multiple takes :)more

House of the Rising Sun
I would love feedback on this, as it is both very different than the original version by The Animals, and from the other songs we have. Our producer described it as "the strangest thing we've done so far" lol We have not released it yet on any streaming platforms because we want to release it along with the final song on the EP. It will fall as song #4, followed by "Lowlife" on the final product.more
