Hey Our Basement,
During the lengthy recording process behind our forthcoming release, I experienced a sudden and inexplicable speech loss – rendering me unable to talk for months. Throughout the steep climb in getting my voice back, I began working in near-isolation on a batch of new material.
The band enlisted producer Ryan Worsley (Dear Rouge, Said The Whale) to help us reach new ground. Our debut single, “Lost In You Now,” was released in early 2018 and we filmed an accompanying DIY video/pseudo-documentary in support of the single. The music video 2 AM around an eccentric character named Kevin and his personal struggle to find acceptance in doing what he loves. His resistance to the norm and to criticism embodied the challenges we faced in creating our new material.
Our sophomore single, “Superficial Feeling,” was mixed by Jason “JVP” VanPoederooyen (Mother Mother, illScarlett) and really feels like something special to me. It feels like the next step for us – for Written Years. It’s a corrupt, little 2AM love song about finding yourself in this strange world.
Big thanks to you for listening.
