Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
'Bad Friend' went through at least three total overhauls before we got to the arrangement on record. First it was folky, then we demoed a psychy, hip-hop version, all with different lyrics and melodies. Landed on what we have now a couple weeks before we started recording. Had to get back to basics. I said to Val and TJ, 'Keep the groove up in the verse, but spare, like Nirvana or Fleetwood Mac,' because if you namedrop bands they like, they'll do it.
Finish this sentence: Bear Hands is the artist that...
...keeps on arting.
