Ever wonder what it’s like to be in the studio with your favorite producers? Like, how the songs grow from mere ideas into emotionally overwhelming moments on the dance floor? Or how do the vocalist write the perfect lyrical melodies, and how do they get inside your soul?
This clip from Trentemøller and Savages singer Jehnny Beth is closest thing us mere mortals may ever get to those magical sessions. Trentemøller is working on his recent album Fixion, and here we see the pair work right down to the wire on a track called “Complicated.” Beth would rather miss her flight home than leave before hitting the perfect notes. It’s not about blasting the mic with powerful song, but reaching some kind of intimacy to match the swelling chords.
“His music is like a flow in words and melodies,” Beth says. “You need to really follow that, you can’t really resist that thing. It has to, I don’t know, it has to agree.”
Let the short clip below be your inspiration for the day.
