After the slight, the end, comes a wish for never having been so she builds a pyre befitting the love once alive and vital as a means to goodbye. It is built not of tangible materials but of memory, dreams and the moments that haunt long after he is gone.
'Into The Pyre' is our seventh song in the Social Singles project and definitely keeps with the theme of trying our hand at new sounds, feels and textures. We hope you like listening as much as we love creating. As Always...download, share and enjoy.
What are The Social Singles? Simply put, it is a collection of songs that we will be releasing online over the course of 2012.
In todays technologically advanced and socially connected world, the ability and ease of an artist to share their work with others is easier, quicker and less constrained by cost than it ever has been. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Bandcamp and Soundcloud (among others) have been transformed from mere information repositories to highly developed tools that artists now have to share their passion with the world.
So, as a challenge to ourselves, an offering to our wonderful supporters and in general a really fun project; Days of Rae will be writing, recording and releasing one single each month throughout 2012. We will be distributing each song completely free of charge on as many social platforms as we can think of. Thusly, throughout the year you will have these songs (dubbed "The Social Singles) available to you to download, share, repost, love, hate, praise, criticize or however else you wish to consume.
With this project, we aim to make each release unique. The production of each song will range from duo compositions recorded in songwriter Cherie Rae Cobbs' home studio, to full band arrangements recorded and produced interstately. We also hope to feature guest musicians on select songs throughout the year.
As always, we thank you for listening as we look forward to a fun and productive year.
-Days of Rae
