TUNE Devilfire - Dream Evil
Writing this song quickly became a bit of a challenge. I began with a very simple piano line and melody. As the song evolved it became clear that not just any catchy melody would do and I rewrote it a few times before settling on the main chorus. As I started to look at the rockier side of the song it became very clear it needed to be sinister and dark.
I’m a big fan of movies and I think that’s why I favour orchestration in my songs so with this I was very into the idea of a follow on song to ‘She’s Like Fire’, a kind of sequel if you like. I wanted to bring out a little more of the sinister and dark side of the Devilfire psyche, so with the lyrics I picked out a very easy topic, a nightmare. This linked in nicely to ‘She’s Like Fire’s nightmare relationship topic. The inspiration for this came from my partner who was having nightmares at the time “I keep seeing ghosts!” she said to me. These words struck a chord with me linking back to the ending of the ‘She’s Like Fire’ video where Phoebe disappears. I’d had the title ‘Dream Evil’ kicking around for a while and with that everything just seemed to fall together!
