Smily’s featured Track

 

Hello darlings 😊🎶❤

I hope you are all happy and smiling. Today I am going to do something a little different.

I love so many genres of music and I love my friends. Even though most of the music I share here is electronic dance music, today I am featuring a track of it’s own genre. And it’s made by a friend in combination with other great talents. Please give this amazing track s listen and support all involved.

When I heard this track I was excited and proud after the long journey it took to get to this place. As my expertise is not in this genre please read the below details provided by my friend.

Don’t forget to listen/follow and support

I understand some of the influences of underground Synthwave and Goth bands get lost in the view of it when those scenes are already pretty low on the radar of many people who will be listening to this.

As for my own comments, I personally would be going out of my way to say that this is my personal favorite track on the album. This was a track where I did everything to make sure it was right. Everybody was brought in that was needed to. Maverick’s ferocious vocals, George Galanos’ ripping guitar solos that conclude the track with a big bang, and Sandra’s instruments that she re-recorded over my own demo, most notably drum machines that would certainly please “Doktor Avalanche” lol

I tend to do many stories or personifications in my lyrics because I want to connect to something with my music. I listen to a lot of Goth music and sometimes it feels like as much as there is darkness, it is more of a mood piece than something they connect with. That’s why I like to do stuff like “The Looks That Kill” or I try to challenge my own personal demons with something like “Without You”. It’s much more interesting to listen to.

Also contextualizing this record felt kinda important for me, not because of how much it means but because in comparison to other retro leaning acts like Greta van Fleet and The Darkness that have a much more well known derivative sound, very few will be in the know about the whole Goth thing. I don’t really want that angle to be lost, especially as some people have tried to label us as Synthrock or basically anything except Goth Rock or Darkwave (Which while I do appreciate the support, I feel hurts the culture)
