Hey Our Basement,
We wrote “Someone New” to channel the dark, cold mood one goes through when dealing with an unexpected breakup. This was one of the first songs that we worked on together. It took some time to feel comfortable releasing something so personal.
The song is based on a rough demo that Sidny had written. Chaix played around with a few wildly different takes before finding the right sound. He really wanted to emphasize the anti-drop: build everything up, then pull it all away for a super minimal, head nodding drop.
The content of “Someone New” is somewhat daunting, yet we found ourselves bumping to it thanks to the bounce of the song’s production.
Oftentimes, it’s common to experience a fluctuation in emotions when coming out of a relationship. “Someone New” describes that series of after effects.
Thank you for listening,
Sidny x Chaix
