Back in pre-production mode with Mayme Marshall. We’ve got the track laid out; lyrics, form, basic percussion finished. Now it’s maximizing the drama by looking for the right tones that really fill out the song and amplify its emotionality. We’re taking our time to get bass tones right and scroll through a ton of Native Instrument plugins. The sonic development of a track, especially in pop music and in this age is crucial. There’s a lot of room to experiment, but it all has to gel.
