‘November’ is one of those tracks that is just purely from imagination, not at all being based on any personal experiences. It leans heavily on my love of old Western soundtracks, especially Ennio Morricone “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly”. Once I had the opening chords and feel for the song, I started to imagine a sequence of events around the murder of a women by her husband who then pins the blame onto a friend who the husband believes is in love with his wife. Being the first man on the scene and having no other defence other than to run. The accused has to return having the weight of the death on his mind and to clear his name. He remembers the dying words of the wife and sends a message to the courtroom, urging them to search the house. And in relaying the information that the wife had provided, of other bodies and their location, “The cellar box room”, the mans name is rightfully cleared.
“Demons” is a track that explores the light and the dark that exist between our fears. How sometimes fear is a great motivator. Silence or loneliness can sometimes push you into situations you never would usually have entered into, therefore learning something you wouldn’t have learnt. Making connections you wouldn’t have made. Sometimes the darkness we all face can make us revisit our purpose in life. We all have different demons at times, knowing we have to face them. Finding your way out of the dark can only lead the light and good. And once learnt can be great tool in life.
