This is another song that's been "in the can" for years. I have a lot of songs that honestly only need about 1 additional hour of work, but I just haven't been able to bring myself to complete them. But I'm going to use the power of the WB community to push through!
It's silly that this song has taken so long - it was done in one take! This is a prepared tabletop guitar piece with a bunch of pedals in the mix. I had to edit out a line buzz frequency and had to edit two cord dropouts. Barely noticeable if I left them in, but you all know what it is like to freak out over a sound that nobody else can hear...
This piece is about something evil in the distance. If Sly Deal was about the car crash, and everyone coming for you, Sinister is about that disturbing thing in the distance that distracted you while you were driving. Except it stays with you. A negative idea is inside of you, in your mind. In a way, it becomes a part of you.
I want to make a music video for this, and the end will be me, waking up on top of the cover of a swimming pool, and me sinking into the pool, getting tangled and smothered by the cover.
