Still moving forward……

Just a quick update. The studio session went great and now we are on a short scheduling hold. The tracks are being sent to Nashville for some beat detective / drum edit work. Until then, the band is sitting tight, practicing, waiting for the tracks to come back. It will be early July before they hit the studio again. In the meantime, I will be putting together a few more interviews, hopefully with the producer Chris Combs and other band members, myself included. I’m not sure how interviewing myself will go, but I’m sure it will be interesting!

Keep checking in!

scarlet|snow in the Studio Making the Needle

Last weekend, scarlet|snow spent a couple days in the studio laying down drums, bass and rhythm guitars.  Here is a quick little video of some of the moments in the studio.  The track in the background is a new song off of the upcoming EP entitled, “Everybody’s Got A Broken Heart.”  We took the vocal tracks out just because we don’t want to give the whole thing away too quickly!!!  Enjoy.

Behind the Songs: A Needle in the Grass is No Good

Here are a few thoughts from songwriter, Ian Canalis about his song, A Needle in the Grass is No Good.

This song was written from the bottom of a valley…no tent, no compass…just me and some coyotes in the distance. Psalm 69 says “Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.” Sins and trials have a way of isolating and frustrating..to the point where what was once very real and tangible seems distantly cold. Psalm 14:2 , “The Lord looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt;there is no one who does good, not even one.” Have you ever dreamed that you were trying to run but your legs just wouldn’t work? Or tried to scream , but no sound would come out? That feeling is exactly what I tried to wrap my arms around through this song – fumbling in the dark, frantically searching for something so precious, but seemingly so far away.

V1:
Shame, shame, shame – shame on me
I can’t swim when the water’s deep
Touching the bottom is a crutch
But I miss it so much

V2:
Pray, pray, pray – on my knees
That you’ll recede this flood and help me breathe
Knowing that this too shall pass
Is like a needle in the grass

Chorus:
I don’t have to say it
It’s a game and we know how to play it
All that we’ve been given
Cannot escape the way that we’ve been living

Bridge:

Rescue me from myself, Rescue me from myself

Rescue me from myself, rescue me

Outro:
We’re no good
