We hope this sticks.
"Evolution of a Song" is an observational documentary about our latest song, "As a Matter of Stats." We started this blog to write about our writing and recording and haven’t posted in a while, so consider this a catch up session. The video includes the studio recording, the writing, rewriting, new ideas, scrapped ideas, and all of the little forks in the road that happen as a song evolves. There’s no one way to do it, this is just how we do.
