In this week’s episode of “How It Went Down,” Hanson share the story of how their tune “Siren Call” was created, and why they see the monitor as a mirrored image of their profession as a band.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the tune, Zac Hanson tells Billboard that he had been re-reading Homer’s Odyssey, so he had legendary Sirens on his thoughts. The tune, which was written in 2016, was created for his or her Loud EP (they file an EP yearly for his or her fan membership) and, as Taylor Hanson explains, a part of that concept is to problem themselves by writing one thing shortly.
“In someday, we're principally writing the tune, recording the tune, from scratch,” Zac says. “Guitars are set, every little thing is able to choose up at any second, simply to go as quick as doable to file.”
Taylor notes that not each tune of theirs comes collectively that shortly, although, explaining, “Every tune isn't that manner. There are songs that sit for years and discover their manner. Songs like ‘MMMBop’ that took years to turn into a tune.” But “Siren Song” got here collectively, he says, due to loads of espresso and many lack of sleep.
“Sonically, it's very melancholy and form of eerie,” Taylor feedback, whereas Isaac Hanson provides that it’s the band’s “most actually spooky, groovy tune” they’ve ever launched.
“I feel you see mirrored on this tune lots about our band at some stage,” Zac concludes. “We've been by our personal set of struggles, we've been going for 25 years, and typically it's nearly getting up, choosing your self up, and going to that subsequent place.”
