This is Hopelessness and Desire, from the single of the same name (last.fm | amie)
I hope the following doesn’t sound pretentious:
I put the first half of this song together around Christmas time, on a small “holiday loneliness” depression whim… at the time it was only a simple loop of the drums and the organ, as it was built for my former band, Fluorescent, to build on and add their twist to. As time went on, my connection to Fluorescent became strained enough that my backing tracks were no longer needed, and I began to add more and more “happy” elements into the mix by myself, and by January the song was completed. I think this song can be considered the official beginning of Some Strange Substance..
The second part of the song (with the strings and high pitched noises) was added to the song around February. That segment is actually called “The Falling Dream” but it was shortened for single purposes (nobody likes a long song title!)
THIS IS THE OUTRO TO A NEW TRACK CALLED “SPATIAL MELANCHOLY” .
AFTER THE INITIAL PANIC OF THE MAIN SONG DIES DOWN, THIS SEPERATE OUTRO EMBODIES THE IMMENSE PROBABLE LONELINESS OF AN ABANDONED SPACE STATION FAR AWAY . THE COMPUTERS ARE STILL ON AND THEY’RE THINKING . WHAT COULD THEY BE PLANNING ?
