The Songwriting process for “Edge of Life”

This song is about admiration I guess.  Nothing dark or awful.  So, It is a slightly lighter side of Slowmatch.  The melodies are, I think, a little less aggressive.  I didn’t want to go into full-on drama or anger.  That is not what this song is about.  But it is about longing for someone we admire.  I think this song still has the Slowmatch stamp but  I tried to go for arrangements that are less dark.  I think the drums and bass and the chord progressions reflect that.  I could see doing a remix of this that would be a lot more ethereal, to express maybe the distance between the protagonist and the person he loves.
