Today I’m releasing Rubble and Dust / Run.
This double A side digital single thingie contains two songs connected by theme and by the fact that they’re the nearest I get to straight-ahead rock songs.
“Rubble and Dust” probably has the most prominent heavy metal influence of any of my songs so far, thought it isn’t full on metal. It’s a big singalong song about mad world-leaders bringing us all to ruin. Yes, I’ve accidentally made a political comment again. I didn’t mean to, honest!
“Run” is about love at the end of the world. It’s a rocky pop song hiding 7/8 verses and at least one funny chord to keep the nerdy muso side of me happy.
Both of these are my first attempt at mixing something rocky in my new project studio. Not perfect of course, but I’m very happy with how both tracks sound.
