DEBUT SINGLE RELEASE FROM HOTEL DEATH STAR – YOU’RE NOT JESUS
NZ singer-songwriter Phil Stoodley and Indonesian composer-producer Andreas Arianto have launched their first collaboration below the moniker, Lodge Dying Star, with a monitor referred to as ‘You’re Not Jesus’. The monitor first gained form within the chilly mountains of snow coated Japan over a yr in the past. Caught in a storm, Stoodley tapped out the unique beats in a chilly resort room that invited the climate inside, greater than defending him from it.
“Properly, what occurred subsequent,” we requested Phil?
“After surviving the storm, I made it again to my home-base of Bali,” says Phil. “I teamed up with Andreas and collectively we formed the sounds into the rhythmic pulse of deep-house whereas protecting the grit of its birthplace firmly etched within the grinding beats and repetitive sounds.”
Their first single, ‘You’re Not Jesus’ discovered its title and vocal loop whereas Phil was kayaking with buddies one early morning on the North Bali sea. As one good friend swam off into the deeper waters, one other was caught on video screaming a warning “You’re not Jesus!” The audio take was then utilized in Lodge Dying Star’s first launch, looped as a pattern inside the monitor.
The monitor has a banging, poppy EDM really feel to it, and positively grinds together with a sure grit. I’m positive it may discover life, or sampled, in a business membership someplace with a couple of tweaks. Being their first launch out the door, I think about the street has simply begun for Lodge Dying Star and they’re going to hone their digital abilities extra as time goes on. This monitor in all probability highlights the variations of rock/pop music composition, EDM (business digital) and home oriented electronica than something, the place maybe the union of sounds and timing in home is of extra significance in that style than a selected melody or refrain like pop music and EDM. You can say (as soon as once more) electronica is extra concerning the journey than the punch line of EDM and pop.
Nonetheless, in a traditional, pop track format for the lots this monitor ‘You’re Not Jesus’ may probably be a fantastic hit. We’ll simply have to attend and see.
