Just like Indiana Jones, we love nothing more than a great find. A funny thing happened to us when we released Waking Me Softly, we got a lot of new fans, female fans. They really liked Snowflake’s song, they really liked our music for the song, and it turned out they really liked other songs and instrumentals we’d made too. Great. We learnt a lot from that song, we learnt how to do make up and give ourselves beautiful painted nails. Or at least, we learnt who to turn to, should we ever need or want to have either of those things.
Through Waking Me Softly, we made a new friend too. A cute shy girl with a beautiful voice, from Hong Kong. She calls herself Shimmery Lunar Girl, we call her awesome
I (tacet) worked with her on “Chasing Butterflies”, SLG came up with the “It doesn’t matter oh” and “Chase some butterflies”, she sang those parts and sent me the iphone recordings. I thought they sounded whimsical and reflective, so I wrote the song around those ideas.
“Summer brings all kinds of things,
Expectations rise and fall,
The warmth, the rain,
The love, the loss,
Another year shines down.
Last year cleansed by winter’s ice,
reminds me to be fresh of thought
Leave my troubles at the door
it doesn’t matter, oh” …
_Ghost and CDK loved the source material, even if it was recorded on an iphone!
We’re really please with how it came out, hope you like it too
