DAY ONE-HUNDRED AND NINETY-FIVE
Good Morning! Pearl and the Beard is up in Connecticut writing, writing, and writing. Right now I am sitting by a lake (very close to a small road, however, as you will hear in the recording). This is a song for yesterday. We were up until about 12 am working on a new song, energy levels waning and brain fried, I attempted to record this last night and failed miserably.
There are some good ideas here, and this is a good draft record of the idea. I will revisit the lyrics and the structure, as it’s a bit loose and indecisive. I had a bunch of people I referenced for melody ideas as I was writing this song, which was helpful for the general movement of the piece.
I wrote the lyrics while Pearl and the Beard was on tour last month and cut and shifted things around for this installment. It’s basically about the stupid and wonderful things people decide to do, how they change us, and how to not regret the outcome.
I’ve been working on swimming like mermaid (among other things), and it’s going pretty well.
