Hey so Steamy and I are teaming up for the NGADM this year of 2014. We got so excited about being together that we took a lot of time to make this song specifically for the auditions! I mostly did just the vocals and some instrumental elements, but Steamy did most of the composition and production work. I hope we get in so we can perform mad science experiments on people! If not...we'll still do them in a basement somewhere, maybe yours!

Lyrics:

Are you afraid of me?
Don't hesitate to be,
Somebody's ugly little secret.

Are you afraid of us?
Only run away if you must.
Stay steady if I appear behind you.

Maybe you can try to hide but,
You can't tear apart what's deep inside.

Are you afraid of me?
Don't hesitate to be,
Somebody's ugly little secret.

Are you afraid of us?
Only run away if you must.
Stay steady if I appear behind you.

Maybe you can try to hide but,
I sealed all the windows shut.
This pressure builds upon your fear here.

If you could scream, jolt upright,
And say you're gonna have a good night.
Oh, it's a mystery what your facial expressions say to me.

Are you afraid of me?
You're the important key.
Somebody's outside, wants to play.

Are you afraid of us?
Cuz there's no one else to trust.
This pressure builds upon the dead.

Do you believe the dark?
Cuz that's where you wanna start.
Remember well what will be said.

I'm posting a few comments on some of the NGADM auditions that particularly stuck out to me, and this is one of them!

I'm just going to say straight up that there are no words to express how excited I am to see that you two have teamed up. Your styles complement each other almost hilariously well. Quirky, disturbing, and trippy all come together into a glorious concoction in a track that has a surprise around every corner, and I'd expect nothing less from a duo like you.

There are so many things I adore about this track, like how the track opens up so widely ten seconds in, both arrangement-wise and mix-wise, or how varied this is, with a bunch of different sections and moods crammed into under 3 minutes of music, while still keeping everything structurally sound. And the singing is something else! I can't deny enjoying the wacky vocal transitions at 0:29 and 2:24 since they add heaps of character to the track, and the scat singing at 1:27 is just priceless. Of course, steampianist's fantastic sense of arrangement and composition have not failed to deliver.

This is breathtaking work. I hope you keep up your A-game, and I'm also hoping for some experimentation from you two (and not just the mad science ones you'll be performing on people). As much as I love the usual circus-like theme, I feel like you both have a plethora of other cards up your sleeve to show us during the competition!
