ARTISTdirect has teamed up with former Hey Monday member Mike Gentile to premiere this video from his new band Rescue Kid. Check out the music video for "Make You Mine."
The song is the first single from the January 28 re-release Re-Ignite.
"'Make You' Mine was part of a batch of demos that I brought to the table when we began writing for Ignite," Gentile told us. "All of the guys were really into the structure and musical vibe of the song, so it was one of the first songs we finished musically for the EP. Lyrically and melodically, [vocalist] Armando wasn't really feeling 'Make You Mine' at first. He couldn't come up with anything he liked, and thought the song was a little too pop. Armando works best in the studio while recording, so he had put off writing to 'MYM' for mainly that reason."
He continued, "Fast-forward to recording Ignite. It was our last day in the studio, the rest of the guys had left. It was just Armando and myself with our producer brooks. Armando had been recording vocals for three days straight, and his voice was shot. We realized we hadn't written or recorded any lyrics or melodies for 'MYM' and had to get it all done that night... with Armando's voice gone. "Armando and I panicked; Brooks our producer suggested whiskey to soothe Armando's vocal cords. As we started drinking, the ideas just started flowing, and Armando was able to sing all of the vocals that night. The group vocals and random conversation during the bridge were done at like 2AM, as an afterthought while listening back to the rough mix of the song. If you listen to the song, Armando's voice sounds a little different on that song, because of the condition his vocals were in while recording it. 'MYM' ended up being one of our favorites on Ignite."
With that in mind, enjoy the video and the song.
