Message from rock band New Earthlings
Hi, how's it going?
Just a little info about the song. The tune and the chorus line were rattling around in my head for years, but never recorded. When it became time in 2012 to make demos of the album (out soon), this was one of them. Our powerhouse vocalist Swain added lyrics that told the story of one man's inexorable demise.
Here's what we said in our press release:
The single, at 3'07" is nearly two minutes shorter than the album version, and is a bouncy, rocking tune that tells a mindful story: 'My life's in pieces like a jigsaw', goes the chorus. Guitarists will be interested to know that the heavy, overdriven guitar sound was obtained using nylon strings.
New Earthlings: Down 'n' dirty '70s-flavoured driving guitar riffs, strong stadium vocals and tight melodies with Led Zep and Thin Lizzy influences.
Thanks for listening
