I’m at a stage with things where I am frustratingly close to finishing some tracks, but something small – usually my inflection in my vocals – stops progress toward completion. Today’s point of frustration is a song called “Shark Eyes.” It is very thin on layers and requires a very flat delivery lest the vocal stand out too much over the backing. It’s close. Many of the new songs are. I just need to keep circling back to them after I walk away for a bit. Performing and being your own producer is a massive headfuck sometimes.
