The Waking Day
The song was inspired by the feeling that you have when you wake up in the morning. That moment where everything is possible – where you choose how you want your day to be…
I applied a 3/4 strumming technique to create the sense of “push,” like a train rolling forward. This represents time. The piano reinforces the harmonic base of the guitar chords, whilst the bass cheekily climbs the music.
I wanted the song to be serious and yet playful.
