H1K0-h0-h00! Merry (late) Christmas and Happy (late) New Year!
Do you remember the Christmas track I made 3 years ago? This one.
Then, do you recognize that melody from intro and koda? Or those harmonies in bridge and chorus? Right, they all originate from Reindeer Team.
Though it's already been three years since I made it, I still consider Reindeer Team as one of my best projects. Especially I love those natural and light melodies and harmonies. But actually I'm not very satisfied with the sound design and arrangement of it so I really wanted to remix or remaster it someday.
As it usually happens to me, I did rearrange it toooooo late - around December 8th - and suggested @KicKReprod making it a Christmas song. He wrote lyrics in a week but because of f.....g school and exams we didn't have time to go to studio and record it. The day we finally recorded vocals is December 29th. Too late for Christmas and New Year, so we decided to release it at our ZingerS' New Year! In other words, on the day @ZingerS was created - the day @KicKReprod dropped me the lyrics of Stay Alive.
So, here it is! The song I'm really proud of! So proud so I'm thinking of making some more tracks with this sound design.
P.S. Just take a look at the cover of this song. As previous, it's designed by me. The photo was taken on December 31th by our friend (not registered in NG so let him be uncredited) in Kuskovo park. There was almost no snow, but fortunately we managed to find a little area with some snow to lie on like a SNOWFLAKE.
P.P.S. Some guys can notice that although almost all the harmonies were taken from Reindeer Team, no one melody was. In vocals, I mean. There're two reasons to it. Firstly, the melodies from Reindeer Team are rather difficult to sing because of wide tonal range. Maybe, as a professional musician, I'd manage to sing them, but no way @KicKReprod. Secondly, when I completed the instrumental track, I actually didn't invent a melody for verses as long as they are (the only) original parts in the song. So, while writing lyrics, @KicKReprod had to think of some easier melodies.
Hello everyone, @KicKReprod is back in place. This is our second song. It will appear on digital platforms on the anniversary of the creation of our group. Yes, writing words to it was a challenge: it's not so easy to find a rhyme when your mother comes into your room from time to time to check how you do your homework. But the result, as for me, was successful. And let you, fans of @ZingerS, while a little. But there is a whole year ahead: at least 2 singles can be expected in the winter and spring. Don't switch!
