From A Mountain: New Song.

"From A Mountain" - Swimmingpool The Band

"From A Mountain" fits into my pieces of structured pop songs. This one, sonically, as well as lyrically, is a bit more personal (maybe even dark, I won't go too heavily into the influences of it) than some of the others. The guitars and key, building around a simple driving beat, are a bit more lyrical and dramatic. They're also more bass heavy, which I think gives the song more of a grip.

Blanket of drone build along the lead guitars and layered vocals in the end. I am incredibly happy with the end result.

Dreamy And Dense: A Breath On The Neck

'A Breath On The Neck' - Swimmingpool The Band

'A Breath On The Neck" is the first off of my collection entitled "Morning Songs". It's a dense, guitar heavy track that features previously recorded drums, five layers of vocals and eight layers (or more) of guitars (+ keys).

The lyrics and voice are simple and are much more instrumental than they are heavily featured piece of a pop-song.

I've been told it's "Dreamy", which is a way I hadn't thought to describe it, but is fitting.

After a lot of writer's block, this song kind of came out of nowhere and manifested itself as a sweet and simple number. I'm ultimately very very happy with it. I hope you enjoy it too.
