New Deep

Documentary about Heavier Things
"Ten More Songs" Documentary

Every song that I write from now on is gonna be eminently playable on the road, but is also gonna feel great to play every night. Something like this: [plays intro to "New Deep"]

Most of these songs are on the electric guitar, which is my response to the last record. But I had to write songs on an acoustic guitar because I didn't have a band. What I like now is I always wanted to be an electric guitar. And in a lot of ways this is my first love letter to the electric guitar.

Are there any songs you go back and listen and think, What the hell was that about? That was terrible.?

There's a song on Heavier Things called "New Deep". Looking back on it, I think I thought I knew what I meant but the idea is a bit undercooked. And slightly nonsensical. You can't win em all.

I'm getting to the age where I'm listening back to songs and there are parts I don't remember. Like I couldn't tell you how they go if you stopped [them]. Like, "New Deep"? I was playing some part of it and I was like, I actually don't remember writing this part.
