Ever wondered what your favourite artists think is the best song they’ve written? How about the meaning behind it? Well don’t fret because we at AltCorner have got you covered! Here The Parallax Method take us behind the scenes on his favourite song!
What is your favourite song you’ve written?
You Gotta Be Squiddin Me!
What inspired the song?
As an instrumental band, that’s a really difficult question for us to be honest as there’s no lyrical theme. However, we bounce ideas off one another and the effort to push ourselves musically is what inspires us. You Gotta Be Squiddin’ Me! is a high energy track featuring odd time signatures, polyrhythms and exotic melodies. In true Parallax fashion, you’ll glide through multiple soundscapes much like the video. With an unusual song structure and a plethora of complex melodies, prepare to travel through the vortex of creative musical fusion.
What is it about the track that makes it so special to you?
It’s a really fun track to play live, it’s one of the first tracks we wrote together. We originally had a different bass player who worked on the first EP with us so this track is special as its one of the first we worked on with Ben in the band.
