INSTAGRAM VS REALITY: the story behind the song 'wild is life'
From the podcast: “Where did the inspiration for that song come about?
So this is very interesting. So this originally came from… I started seeing some of Bryn [North’s] stuff and wanted to see what Bryn was doing. And I was just starting off with some travel music ideas; and that was my very first idea that I came up with. Then I said to Bryn “dude lets do something together!” and then I sent him Going North first. So I came up with that first.. that was just the beginning of getting into the travel kind of stuff and I wanted to make stuff that catered to travel videographers. I like the travel scene, I like what you guys are making. I’d love to like.. Hold hands with you guys and..
How long did that track take to make and was there a particular part in that track that was tough or was there a unique element that perhaps has some sort of a story to it?“
… “So that track took me between 2 and 3 hours. It just came fast. It was the first time I tried something like this and I just went for it. One of the interesting things for me were some of the chords, I think it’s like a 7th chord or something, and the rhythm isn’t quite the normal type. This was really exciting for me because I always felt like it was quite interesting to listen to. It was mainly that, and then just trying to infuse it with a world feel. So I started adding Kalimbas and things like that, to keep it in the world (genre) atmosphere.
Oh and I just remembered one more thing that was interesting. If you listen, there’s a part that goes “laa la laa” (humming a line). That’s just me making noise into the microphone. I’m just singing. So that’s just a vocal which I distorted the heck out of and put reverb to death on. I’m singing Oohs and Aahs and Ees.. some sort of jungle book stuff.“
