The Dip Mines Doo-Wop Flavors for 'She Gave Me the Keys': Premiere


Time and care had been the important thing phrases for the brassy Seattle troupe The Dip because it labored on its upcoming sophomore album, The Dip Delivers -- whose "She Gave Me the Keys" is premiering solely under.

"One of this issues we tried to do with this complete document was take the time to document it ourselves," drummer Jarred Katz tells Billboard, noting that guitarist Jacob Lundgren took the lead behind the board. The Dip has its personal studio now, dubbed the Mustard Studio after the colour of a sofa discovered within the transformed clothes retailer, and that's additionally helped the group hunker down on recording the 10-song set.

"The first document we made we recorded in about three days in a studio in Seattle," Katz says of The Dip's self-titled 2015 debut. "It was enjoyable however we felt the strain and that studio clock ticking the entire time. Now we are able to type of work at our personal tempo and experiment with sounds and never be rushed. It actually makes a giant distinction."

The shuffling, doo-wop flavored "She Gave Me the Keys" is a living proof, in accordance with Katz. "Of all of the tracks we recorded for the document, that one took the longest to nail down," he says. "We did quite a few takes of the tune. For some cause every time we couldn't fairly get the sound or really feel or couldn't get the precise accompaniment. So we began tweaking and attempting some totally different drums and issues like that to get a extra particular sound. We recorded a bunch of hand claps, tambourine, piano, all to create this form of enjoyable vibe that hopefully you may hear if you hearken to it."

The lyric, in the meantime, comes straight out of frontman Tom Eddy's personal expertise. "It's one thing lots of guys encounter," Katz says, "particularly when your important different is that this superior woman and he or she's received this stunning automotive and he or she gained't such as you drive it since you're type of a bum and also you're on this rock 'n' roll band that's not doing that effectively. She has the facility and also you're alongside for the trip. But then when she relents and provides you the keys for that one trip, you are feeling prefer it's an important victory."

With The Dip Delivers due out Feb. eight, the group will probably be hitting the street once more shortly thereafter for an in depth U.S. tour. And Katz says the group is trying ahead to having double the recorded repertoire to play on these dates, particularly almost 4 years after its final launch. "We've received a pair singles out that we've sprinkled out over the previous few years, however for probably the most half individuals know us from the primary document -- and we're somewhat uninterested in taking part in a few of these previous songs," he notes. "It will probably be enjoyable the implement the brand new ones after which tweak the older (materials) and have a bit bigger catalog to attract from."
