Here is the first of our new songs. A “progressive-disco-rock” tune called Landslide. It’s available on YouTube and all major streaming platforms. Remember to subscribe to our newsletter if you want to hear future releases before they are made public.
-More cowbell: The cowbell during the second half of the verses is a part of Andreas’ drum pattern, but the microphones didn’t pick it up enough, so Bjorn had to do an extra overdub … So there are TWO cowbells.
-The phone effect: Kristjan’s phrase “We’re going to Mars” during the choruses is recorded through an actual telephone. No cheating here …
-Mars sounds: There are real sound recordings from Mars available on NASAs home page. We avoided this rabbit hole due to time constraints. The sounds that we used are quite similar anyway. But who knows; perhaps the album version might feature actual Mars sounds?
-Recycling: We’re all about sustainability, so the middle part of the song is a variation of the guitar melody from the first half of the chorus (but adapted to 7/4 time signature).
