We have been posting a track-by-track analysis of our album “Boredom and Joy” in sequence. Keep checking back for new descriptions. Here’s Antonia’s analysis of the album’s fourth track:
“Love Got in the Way”
Adam has quite a lovely falsetto (note: falsetto is defined as a method of voice production used by male singers, esp. tenors, to sing notes higher than their normal range). It provokes an interesting reaction when unleashed – birds stop singing, small children are overcome with a tentative serenity, our dog cocks her head so far to one side it looks like it might spin all the way around. Some people laugh when they hear it (it reminds them of something), whereas others find they are suddenly craving a cocktail, or want to dance with somebody. I love it.
There’s a lot of things I love about this song. I loved recording it, and I love performing it. And I feel like I don’t know exactly how to explain why – that’s what is so fascinating/powerful/inconceivable about loving. You just love. And sometimes it soars, and sometimes it gets in the way of all sorts of shizz-nazz.
