This is the video for my new song Mornings (demo). I have to be honest. I’m not really performing in this video. Well, I am. But I’m performing to the finished track. I didn’t actually have the cameras rolling during the recording of the song.

Anyway, the gear I used in the song is my Teenage Engineering OP-1. This gave me the opening chord progression. That accidentally triggered a sequence on my Modal Skulpt and I thought it sounded like a clock ticking so it made me think of the lyrics as well. I also used my Korg Volca FM which was modified with the unofficial Pajen firmware for the keyboard part. As well as my Squier Jaguar tuned to dropped D tuning. The bass is an 808 sample that I made in Logic Pro X. I go over how I processed my vocals in my previous video, so if you’re curious about that, check that bad boy out.

The lyrics are:
I don’t wanna get up
Brain is too damn backed up
I think I might stay in bed all day

Maybe if I sit up
Nope it ain’t much better
Need some weed to help slow down my brain

Get Showered and Start the Godddamn Day
Even though we all end up the same
Your legacy will be an unmarked grave
So sort your shit and get your head on straight
