Sweet Tooth, a 6 piece indie rock band at BIMM Bristol, go Behind the Track on ‘Disneyland’…
What was the inspiration behind your track?
I was at a house party, it was towards the end of the night and there were people passed out around me. My friend who’s high as a kite turns to me and just says with a smile, “I’m in Disneyland”. I immediately wrote this down on my notes on my phone and started from there.
What did your songwriting process involve?
Lyrically, I wanted to make the connection between Disneyland and the drug induced euphoria, referencing popular Disney characters to make the contrast with adult themes and the happily ever after. ,Musically I wanted this song to have an interesting vibe to compliment the lyrical content – key changes and time signatures switching helped achieve this while keeping some structure to the song.
Is there are story behind the song?
The story of this song is someone craving a feeling that they couldn’t get by themselves. Needing the help of narcotics to reach euphoria or ’Disneyland’
Can you describe your sound in three words?
Punchy, Emotive, and Inimitable.
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?
The people I’ve met, connecting with people from all different walks of life and sharing our love of music alongside each other.
