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 fifth track:
“Saved by It”
Saved by the show, that is. The exchange of energy between a musical act and the group of people observing the act. Sharing what it means to be human through art and sound. Anthropologists think that the reason homo sapiens (us) survived the last ice age and neanderthals didn’t (even though they were stronger and physically better equipped) was because we were sharing art with each other and that bonded us and gave us the will to survive, and help each other survive.
This one started off as a slow, laid-back, rainy afternoon song – but morphed into a fast little spitfire under the guidance of our producer-extraordinaire Emery Dobyns and in the influence of our epic crush on New York City at night. Adam came up with that sparkling guitar riff you hear off the top at Stratosphere Sound studios in West Chelsea, NY.
