During the session, we were in doubt of which song we were gonna pla.
At the last moment, we decided to do ‘Magic Surf’, also because we hadn’t done it in another session yet.
The inspiration for this song came when we were jamming to ‘What a Man’ in the rehearsal room.
If you listen closely, you can hear a couple of similarities between the guitar in the bridge of What a Man and this opening riff
2 meter sessions – Sweet Boy
A new wednesday, a new 2 Meter video.
This one started out as a jam in our rehearsal space, with three pieces of music we had a hard time combining with eachother.
When producer Simon Akkermans got involved during the recording sessions, we got the puzzle fixed together. Thanks Simon.
Sweet Boy is a story about someone who runs into his younger self. What would you do. What kind of advice would you give him/her?
Have a listen!
2 meter sessions – Straaljager
The second song we performed at 2 Meter Sessions was ‘Straaljager’.
Arthur works in the city centre of Utrecht, and on the opposite side of him there would always be the same homeless guy, selling street-newspapers. His name was Hans. Most people just ignored him, but when Arthur came to know him a little bit better he turned out to be a kind and intelligent man, who just had too much misfortune in his life.
When one day he wasn’t sitting in his regular spot anymore, Arthur found out Hans had passed away, without anyone really noticing. Then, this song came out. An ode to Hans, the street-newspaper seller.
