DALI VAN GOGH’S members statements about new single Past Crimes
It feels really great to finally have it down on tape so to speak.
I really love the dynamic between my voice and Rachelle’s. How thematically we change the music to follow who is singing. At times I almost feel like I’m playing two characters in the song. One low and brooding in the verses, and then a pure response to Rachelle’s inner monologue during the choruses. It has that ‘beauty and the beast’ vibe. It’s my favourite ‘anti-love’ song we’ve ever done, and we’ve written more than a couple.”
I’m extremely excited to be taking on a bigger role within the band. I am grateful for the opportunity to show off more of my vocal chops alongside John.
Past Crimes came about very organically. The first draft of the song was written about the breakdown of a close relationship in my personal life. It wasn’t originally going to be a duet. However once it clicked to me that this could be taken as a love story of sorts, the lyrics came together very smoothly.”
When I listen to the song I can’t help but tap my foot along. Isaac came to me with the original groove. Once we had the chorus down as the counter to it, I was sold. I think that’s what will really hook people in the end, the big powerful chorus.”
