The current song stuck in my head is by a solo artist called Absofacto from Michigan.
For me, making “Dissolve” was about capturing a feeling. This certain feeling that is so impossible to pin down that I almost don’t want to describe it in too much detail because I know I’ll get it wrong. It’s a blend of tragic, romantic, beautiful, all with a healthy dose of casual cruelty. “Doomed odyssey, all in the name of unrequited love” stuff. That’s not quite it though; there I go, not getting it right. Told you I wouldn’t.
Love, as a volatile and dangerous substance, and a terrible thing to put into the wrong hands. Handing someone the keys to your heart, and having them take it out for a dangerous joyride because it doesn’t mean a damn thing to them.
Nope, still not quite getting it right.
