For the artwork for this release we wanted to channel some serious nostalgia vibes. So we took inspiration from classic 80’s movies like The Goonies and ET where everyone was riding their bikes everywhere and we tied a love story element around that.
After last month’s dark and heavy subject matter the duo lighten things up with the breezy and summery “I Want You”. The song itself is about the feeling of falling in love. Those early stages when you are lusting after someone. But, you are not sure if the other person feels the same way. So, the song recounts those first moments of wanting to be with someone. Through to being their everything and those moments when you turn the lights down low and imagine all the bad things you can do.
Throughout the monthly release strategy, the duo have enjoyed exploring new sonic palettes, song types and generally having fun with music. Letting the songs guide their own sound without letting marketing get in the way of the creative process. They duo have also discovered the joy of writing a song and instantly recording it. Not stewing over ideas. If a song comes quickly then great. If not, then it’s onto the next idea. A real moment of creative freedom.
This time, the duo have incorporated a horn section and solo trumpet into the song. As well as using the recording studio as an instrument, leading to lots of sonic exploration. Such as playing a banjo with a slide, using distortion on it and reversing it. The song itself actually comes from an idea that was sung into a phone voice recording mimicing a trumpet. After coming off tour we showed the idea to Nathan Simpson. Nathan then transposed this idea to the trumpet and the song was written around that sequence of notes.
Proud to be DIY artists Chantelle and Chris recorded, produced and mixed the song themselves. With Chantelle and Chris playing all the instruments on the track. Apart from the Trumpet and Drums. The Drums were tracked by Chris Brush in Nashville, TN. The track was Mastered by Pete Maher (U2, Rolling Stones, The Killers, Snow Patrol and many more). “I Want You” will be released across all digital and streaming platforms on 10th July 2020.
