In this week’s episode of “How It Went Down,” Hanson share the story of how their song “Siren Call” was created, and why they see the track as a reflection of their career as a band.
Speaking of the inspiration behind the song, Zac Hanson tells Billboard that he had been re-reading Homer’s Odyssey, so he had mythical Sirens on his mind. The song, which was written in 2016, was created for their Loud EP (they record an EP every year for their fan club) and, as Taylor Hanson explains, part of that idea is to challenge themselves by writing something quickly.
“In one day, we're basically writing the song, recording the song, from scratch,” Zac says. “Guitars are set, everything is ready to pick up at any moment, just to go as fast as possible to record.”
