TUNE Joy Surrender - Chains
"I wanted to create something that would showcase a different side of Joy Surrender. Musically, where 'Escape' (my debut single) featured a wall of sound, pounding drums and shimmering reverbs, 'Chains' offers a sparse mix of vocals, electric guitar and vocoder.
The original version - which I recorded as part of a mini-album I’m working on - features a very dense mix of sounds, so I had to really go back to basics and focus on the core of the song. Lyrically, it’s about confronting somebody’s ghost, that’s the reason why I wanted to give a sense of transparency and starkness, both through the audio and through the video (available at http://youtu.be/eGiua4bZzLA)."
