How is it October already? This Monday, with classes kicking off across our colleges, we’ve got a great Track of the Week for your listening enjoyment from recent BIMM Bristol Graduates! Here’s Sweet Tooth with ‘Train Of Thought’.
What was the inspiration behind your track?
The inspiration for this track was based around the idea of reflection, being able to build barriers around negativity and separating yourself from the sometimes overwhelming thoughts that you can hear. I wanted this song to feel like a conversation.
What did your songwriting process involve?
I brought the song to the band when it was half written. I had just finished the second chorus and I was so unsure of where to take it. Lily and Emma came up with the call and response bridge section and then Marcus just came up with this insane solo. I really wanted this song to be a push and pull with the tension and release, and I am so happy with how it has turned out.
What do you try and do differently to make your sound stand out?
Utilising the 3 vocals, genuine performances in the studio and to keep developing our sound to create something new and exiting.
Describe your sound in 3 words…
Dark, Heavy, Punchy.
Are there any particular artists that inspired you whilst writing the track?
Linkin Park and Nothing But Thieves.
What’s the best thing about studying at BIMM?
The community, you are surrounded by inspiring, passionate and creative people, who all want to succeed in their chosen field. Its a good motivator to keep yourself working towards your goals.
How has BIMM helped you develop as an Artist?
I learned so much from just talking to tutors about their experiences and just taking in all the advice they gave me.
What’s the best bit of music advice you’ve been given?
Be a hustler.
Anything exciting coming up you can share?
We have been in the studio throughout the year so expect more new music soon!
