Behind the Track: Learn to Lie

What was the inspiration/is there a story behind your track?

“Breathe” was written to convey a message of – “we all experience low points but you can get yourself through it.” Lyrically the song describes someone who is struggling at a point in their life, battling their own demons and feeling unable to get out of a rut.

What did your process involve?

Our guitarist came to a rehearsal with the riff for the verses which we then jammed for a while, and the bassist and drummer came up with ideas that worked well and led to new ideas. The whole song grew from there and came together when the lyric melodies were added.

Do you have a favourite line/section of the song?

My favourite section of the song is the chorus. The lyrics express sad emotions throughout the song which helps the chorus to stand out as the happy “feel good” part of the song that lifts you up. This is also expressed by the “pop” sound in the instruments.

Can you describe your sound in three words?

Alternative pop rock.

What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?

The best part of studying at BIMM is working with musicians who have a different taste in music than you because it leads to interesting ideas for new songs and/or covers.
