April 2009: Cute Destroyer

Ok, here we go. Our first free track for this website project

We wanted to start out with something that's at the same time very inherently Viola-like, but still out of our current comfort zone, so we chose to do something we've been wanting to do for a while now: ROCK.

Obviously, the word "rock" has a bit of an ironic meaning in the Viola-context, so don't expect us to start sounding like Radiopuhelimet, but still it felt really good to just bash in an under 3-minute track after a few years of disco inferno. I actually realized that I hadn't played drums on a Viola record after recording some stuff for Anything Can Stop Us in 2005 (there was just some samples and loops of earlier stuff on Wonderabilia and Melancholydisco 2), so that was especially nice.

But the most triumphant comeback is by an old Viola-favorite: mountaintop geetaars, the lack of which is quite possibly the worst problem with our few latest releases! If you're unfamiliar with the concept, please check out the beginning of Bed Of Roses by Bon Jovi. Or Stargazing by Viola. Whichever you prefer.

The basis of this track is actually a loop we made while preparing Melancholydisco 2 in my old flat in Töölö some time around December 2007. We got a really cool uptempo thing going on, but decided to ditch the idea for later as it didn't seem to fit the Melancholydisco-concept. I'm glad we did as I think the less-electronic-more-electric format did the track far more justice.

But the coolest thing of all is that even though this track is 2:54 long, we were able to cram it full of tiny Viola-trademarks.

At the moment, this way of working - making one track every single month and putting it online instantly - feels really really good. It's just really cool that less than an hour before people get to hear the track, I was making final mix and master tweaks and that the vocals of the track were recorded about a week before it's release (and if I know Riku at all, the lyrics were written about a week and a day ago). I just love the spontaneity. By limiting our time we force ourselves to focus on the bare essentials. That said, this song still had over 50 tracks of stuff on it. So much for "bare essentials"...

We really really really hope you like the track and that you leave at least some sort of comment about it here!

Love,
Tommi

Lyrics

cute destroyer
starry-eyed cyclone
tear me out from my comfort zone

oh sweetness, I see destruction
sparkling in your wide eyes
cutie pie, I know you're my demise

cute destroyer
shy shatterer of my world
you leave me scattered on the floor

oh cuteness can be deceiving
I undestood much too late
the revenge of the cute brigade

cute destroyer
angelic exterminator
devastation makes you purr

so you're trying to destroy me, it's ok
my life is in disarray anyway
I should book you in the AAA
Adorable Annihilators Anonymous

cute destroyer
you will destroy me
oh so cutely
you will destroy me
and set me free

Hyvältä kuulostaa, Erittäin

Hyvältä kuulostaa, Erittäin hienoa että laitoitte levyt jakoon (ei olisi varmaan muuten tullut tutustuttua)

hi guys. The new track is

hi guys.
The new track is pretty cool, i like when you make this kind of songs.. i mean.. uptempo, "happy" maybe (maybe because i don't understand the lyrics).. etc.
And i liked the way it became kinda epic at the end, with lots of layers of sounds and everything.

well... i'm writing too much and saying nothing.
good luck, bye

Heard the song last night and

Heard the song last night and am downloading now! My first impressions were good and the cat had me in stitches.

Actually, your background videos are all fantastic, my (and surely everybody else's) favorite being "Strange delights". Have you ever considered putting them up for download (or at least streaming) as well?

#119

I'm sure the copyrights

I'm sure the copyrights holders of the stuff used in the Strange Delights -visualizations wouldn't be all too happy about distributing them online...

The other problem with uploading our visualizations is the fact that they're not edited full videos. Our videos our managed by VJ-software called Arkaos and our audio sequencer (Ableton Live) feeds MIDI command to it, telling it to play clips, use effects and turn on our live cameras. Getting a recorded version of the visuals would be a bit of a task.

But yeah, we have thought about doing it, so hopefully we'll get around to it soon.

Mites muuten noi biisien

Mites muuten noi biisien lyriikat, suunnitelmissa pistää niitä ylös jonnekin?
Hienon biisin ootte saaneet aikaan, vaikkei ihan Wonderabilian viisujen mahtavuuteen yllä. Jään innolla odottamaan jatkoa ^^

Kohtahan teette jo hitin!

Just hyvä biisi toi uusi.

Just hyvä biisi toi uusi. Vaikka ihan aluksi tulikin vähän Teenage Satan Worshipper-fiilikset. Mut ne kaikkos!

#115

Ehkä mun tuuraus-rumpalointi

Ehkä mun tuuraus-rumpalointi IWATSW:ssä on tartuttanut vaikutteita. Ei me ehkä ihan niin miehekästä musaa osattaisi kuitenkaan soittaa.

Muuten ihan kiva biisi, mutta

Muuten ihan kiva biisi, mutta mun mielestä tuo hipsutteluväliosa kyllä rikkoo jytän just kun siihen pääsee kiinni.

#110

Uusi biisi on koukuttava!

Uusi biisi on koukuttava! Muutenkin kiva idea tämä uusien biisien julkaiseminen kuukausittain netissä - nyt onkin sitten joka kuukausi jotain mitä odottaa... :)

Lyriikoita tosin kaipailisin näihin uusiinkin biiseihin, voisitteko harkita niidenkin laittamista nettiin ihmisten saataville?

Whoa nice start (I loved that little drop on 1:28 or so)! Really looking forward to this song in a month concept!
