Item Description
All the songs on the album were recorded at High Sea Studios by Jacques Du Plessis and Adrian Erasmus, described by the band as the 6th and 7th members of SHORTSTRAW. Musically, the collection as an album expresses the different types of music all the members are into; not being dictated by any sound or genre each month, the band wrote about whatever they were feeling at the time and what they thought sounded good.
“Lyrically there was definitely a theme, and that theme was basically 2016-2017! Each month, as we wrote the songs, I’d just be singing about what I was going through at the time. A struggling relationship, a break up and the subsequent reforming of said relationship, along with the death of my first dog. It’s actually a pretty personal album.” says Alastair Thomas.
“Committing to releasing a new song and music video every month is all about sticking to timelines otherwise they would have lost all momentum, says SHORTSTRAW. While writing the songs each month, some came more easily than others. A few of them came from old ideas reimagined:
Ignorance is Bliss was born out of idea of Alastair that is almost 10 years old, whereas Our Simple Minds and The Less We’re Together came about in less than an hour.”
Compared to their previous albums, THOSE MEDDLING KIDS feel more free and bold; the songs are all vastly different and diverse and in some cases, they change tempos and even in the case of Rich Richards, are three different songs in one. The band cared less about what people may have expected, and were more content to do what they think is great and exciting. They tried something new on almost every song and played with time
signatures, genres, production elements and collaborations.
The result: THOSE MEDDLING KIDS, a music collective.
