Phew, usually when I come home after band rehearsal, I’m all excited and exploding with happiness. But not yesterday. We’re stuck once again. It’s a repeating pattern. We work on our songs, we get all excited and feel like we’ve created the hottest shit on earth. And then suddenly we realize that it’s totally not. The sound is not right. It’s too pop, too ordinary, too ‘been there before’. Realizing this sucks big time. Last night we were sitting around not really knowing what to do and where to start. It was frustrating. We knew what we wanted to change about our songs, but didn’t know how. We experimented a bit, but it didn’t really lead to anything. So we decided to call it a night. But before we left, each one of us took something home to work on. To really focus on instead of constantly working on 1000 things at a time. And guess what, today creativity was flowing again. Everyone is working on his own right now and I can only speak for myself, but I’ve had some epic ideas so far. They’re gonna need some more time to grow, but I can’t wait to share them with the others and see what they’ve come up with.
As frustrating this situation is right now, I believe it is necessary. We’re still a young band. We’re like babies exploring our environment. We still have to find ourselves and make up our mind about the way we want to sound. This is going to require some hard work and sweat. But I’m sure that if we hang in there and be patient, we’ll eventually get there. We’ve come so far already from where we started a couple of months ago. Failing is not an option!
