flag [Single]

by fhae



Another GarageBand triumph for fhae!

'flag' is an experiment whereby Ellena tried to get out of their comfort zone and use more complex drums and arpeggiators, even using a metronome (heresy!) to give the song a more structured feel.

The vocals have also been heavily stripped back in parts to highlight the electronic instrumentation a little more.

The initial aim was for a jumpy and hopeful soundtrack, influenced by LCD Soundsystem’s ability to build and layer sounds to a climax.

The result is a little darker and moody with the lyrics telling a story about getting through rough times.



I hear it glistening
Fried out of its mind
Soft white, crystalized
It's so fucking bright

They we must
So, let's fucking must

And through the end of the tunnel
She waits

Trying to communicate
Trying to place

She’s trying and trying to help
She doesn’t want to come in second place

It’s a fucking war out there
And she wants to shred off all of their faces

She wants to hug you
She wants to kiss your face

The vibrations
They're coming
Through the tunnels
They’re ticking

Try try try
Try until you die

Move your arse
Get to that plane
Keep moving fast
Get off your fucking arse

Die die die
People always die


It’s so fucking bright
