”Corite is a really cool concept that I think will help talented artists that needs funding to get their music out there. All you need is a great song. I also believe it will help less commercial artists to market themselves when they get more capital. My observation is that indie and underground music often has a very dedicated fanbase. With that said I strongly believe that well known artists with loyal fans will benefit using Corite as well.”, Penthox says.
I started the song from scratch in a studio session with Martin Schalburg and David Martell. I had listened a lot to Avicii’s posthumous album “TIM” and was very inspired by the productions on that album. The chorus was initially planned to have tropical vibes with Jubel's “Teenage Minds” as reference, a guitar lead and soft soundscape. I decided to switch to a more energetic soundscape for the chorus as this naturally developed during production.
I can't take a lot of credit for the lyrics, I simply presented my vision to my co-writers and became a filter for their text-writing abilities. I offered input to the ideas that were thrown around while I worked on the production. I wanted to make an upbeat song, but not necessarily happy (it easily feels cliche). Melancholic lyrics tend to have a more genuine tone.
After finding the first two sentences of the lyrics, which is also repeated in the pre-chorus, the song pretty much wrote itself.
I tend to include a “house mindset” in my productions, even though they are more pop oriented. I want the 4/4 kick pulse, pumping chorus, a lot of bass and crisp high end.
