Under the Goldstar Pt. I

Author Comments

Another re-release from my 2019 demo album "Under the Goldstar: The Floorboard Demos (Vol. I). This one is a bit weird, so I'm not sure if you guys will like it, but it's actually one of the most important song of the album to me.

For some context, the goldstar refers to a bridge in my hometown. I used to go there and sit by the river, and it was always a calming experience. That place gave a bit of consistency to a time that was otherwise so inconsistent. It was a special place. The whole demo album was actually built around conversations and experiences I'd had under that bridge.

Hope you enjoy!

Instrumental’s got a strooonnngg death cab vibe. I’m not the biggest fan of the vocal treatment but that’s just my taste I guess.

Lyrically and thematically, I’m a fan. It’s a pleasant sort of longing i get from it.

floorboardofficial responds:

Thanks for the feedback! I did figure that the vocals on this would be a hit or miss kinda deal. Some people seem to like it, others not so much. I was aiming for a robotic feel to promote a sense of dissociation, but there are better ways to do it (over dubs, high-rate phasing, tape effects, glitch effects, etc). This was essentially my first song though, so I just didn’t have the production arsenal at the time. But hey, I certainly won’t complain about a death cab vibe, and I’m glad you enjoyed it thematically hahaha. Thanks for listening!

100gecs is takin over

floorboardofficial responds:

Nope. This was written well before the release of 1000 gecs. Not particularly constructive bud.
