The Wrong Place
on: May 12, 2014, 13:40:02
Hi all,

It's been a while. The worst beginning to a year i can remember - thank goodness music is a constant refuge.
This song just sort of happened. We are writing "pop" stuff for the album comp, but this one broke ranks and was deemed a bit too "rock," so it's been put on the other project.
It's about making friends online, then agreeing to meet them...


The Wrong Place

She said , we're friends
Let's meet like they do in the movie
If you're a friend
I think you'll want to meet me

And after all
Shared a message on the wall
She held her hand,
So glad to know you
I'm in control
Saw new meaning in her eyes
And so, i said

I'm not really sure about anything
Just standing in the wrong place
No, really, leave me alone
I'm in the wrong place, like... like... like you

She tries so hard
To be like the girl in the movie
She thinks so hard
I think she wants to be me

And we should all
Learn the lessons from the wall
She turned around and said
I know truth
She lost control
Saw no feeling in her eyes
And so, I said

Chorus rpt:

Now i saw
The writing on the wall
She turned around
And held a gun
And pointing to her head
She said
Let's go together

Chorus rpt:

Good and powerful start into the song, digging the synths!
And then the guitar in the left speaker, that's a great sound in combination with the synths.
You know, this reminds me a bit of the band Metric that I like a lot  :)

Good decision I think to go with these megaphone like vocal FX. Personally I would have dialled them back just a tad, but it does sound super cool!

The sorta psychedelic instrumental outro is excellent. There's always some elements in the arrangement that are changing ever so slightly, could listen to this for minutes and minutes.

Very cool sound, very cool song  :)

Great poprock song and well performed although it?s not my preferred kind of music. I like Katjas voice more without effect on it but it fits very good to the music.However a very good song and very well played and sung.

Very good track Digger  :)

I'm not sure if it's a pop song though..... this more feels like a film/TV score.  I'm imagining this playing as incidental music to Taggart or something similar.   A great collaboration between the two of you.  Well done!

Thanks for listening.
I've messed around with the vocal in the mix, tried to keep the effect but clean it up a little.  I tried totally clean but it didn't seem right for some reason - perhaps because i've heard it "effected" for so long.
To be honest I don't know what pop is these days, so if it's not our usual "gloomy" stuff I call it pop. :) Soundtrack sounds good though.

You guys can be proud of this piece of music. Not my style but I can recognise quality when I hear it and this has got it.
