Sometimes we need a break, a break from work, school, the internet or even a relationship. Our bonds can strengthen when we are deprived and we can look at our lives in a new light. Doug Tuttle keeps this song so simple for one reason, because life is simple. We over complicate things ourselves and sometimes the only way to reevaluate is to take a step back. This song consists of a pre-chorus and a chorus highlighting the main theme over and over again, but you don’t seem to mind as there is a lot going on behind the lyrics.
A huge acoustic guitar starts the song off and provides a nice strumming pattern with lots of room for the bass to sit behind the drum kit. A clarinet soars overtop of the lyrics given them an enlightening feel. The song is about taking time away from what you love to find out more about it – to search your feelings. After this point is made at the end of the chorus, a gritty guitar solo spews out of the guitar giving you the time to reflect before diving back into the pre-chorus.
Take some time, let the song guide you on a journey, and you just might find some insight.

Flowers can be tricky though, some require constant care and a perfect climate so we spend a lot of time tending to them, nurturing them so they may be seen by the world in all of their glory. Humans can act the same way…

It’s easy to get lost, lost in the moment, lost driving around, or maybe in a good book. Right from the beginning of Diving Woman, you get lost in the music; there is a fast fluttering synth that leads into some big four-on-the-floor drums and an inescapable bassline. Guitars fill in some space with some repetitive notes and a thick pad sits behind blending everything into one mass…

Immediately the scene is set after the drum fill as a comforting “ooos” and “ahhs” glide overtop of a mid-tempo rhythm, accompanied by a surprising groovy bass and precisely placed piano. The feeling of longing on a road trip starts to set in, a journey has begun and you’re along for the ride…
