November 2009: No Connection
To conclude our autumnal triptych of holy melancholy, we present to you a track by the name of No Connection, which might lyrically be one of the darkest Viola tracks yet, so it's fitting we're releasing it on All Hallows' Eve.
Musically it falls under the same category as our other previous more cinematic efforts, like Never Cease To Wonder, Ada Bell (In A Montage) and Planet Struck. To top things off, the song has 9 parts but not a single one of them repeats the same vocal melody. Furthermore, the instrumentation is built with the idea that once an instrument enters the picture, it has to stay in until the end of the song, building layer after layer after layer of intertwining melodies and harmonies. So if you got bored of our over-the-top pop antics in the summer, I hope these autumn weepies have provided you with enough contrast to bear through another summer of carefree euphoria that's inevitably looming in the future.
Oh, and by the way, the melodic kick drum is a total rip-off from Kanye West's amazing 808s and Heartbreak album. I really recommend you check that album out without prejudice.
But anyway, hope you like this one. Next month we'll yet again be back with something very very different. Something we haven't done in 5 years... But first, let us know how you like this one!
