Hello Danny Randell and welcome to BuzzMusic. We adore the relatable and spiteful lyrical themes within your latest single, "Don't Come Back." When did you begin feeling inspired to write this powerful breakup tune?
As strange as it might sound, I actually got the inspiration for this song over Christmas! Although at that point it was mostly melody, with just a few placeholder lyrics in some spots. When I sat down to fill out the song in January, I started thinking harder about what story the song was trying to tell. I usually write my songs like that, to be honest...there's some experience that is trying to work its way out of my head into the music I'm playing- that's how I get the starting lyrics—and then I need to think seriously about how it best makes sense to tell that story in full. What did you want your audience to take away from your empowering lyricism within "Don't Come Back?"
I really want this song to be people's go-to "see you later" song when they need one. This is the song telling you not to go back to that person that doesn't treat you right, no matter how bad we might think we need them—we don't, and we're probably better off just leaving that chapter closed and telling that person to literally just not come back. It should be something you can blast in your car with the windows down with your friends, like your true friends, who are there for you when that other person leaves you feeling abandoned or betrayed. I think it's a serious topic, but it's a fun song for the reason that, you're celebrating leaving that person behind and looking forward to what's next. What was the creative/recording process like for "Don't Come Back?" Did you work with any musicians to help create such a dense instrumental atmosphere? I did actually! My producer Ben is a talented multi-instrumentalist, so he did almost all the keyboard stuff and the electric guitars. Then, I guess a cool product of recording in a pandemic you know, we actually recruited a super talented cellist off of Fiverr to play on the bridge. We just knew it needed something besides acoustic guitar there, and I'm a big fan of using real instruments where you can. His name's Martin Kutnar, and he's from Croatia. Another cool thing that happened kind of spontaneously when we recorded "Don't Come Back" was me pushing myself vocally. I don't use my upper register a whole lot, like consistently, for a whole verse or chorus, but this song just needed that energy, and so we went for it; it was cool to challenge myself in that way and I'm pleased with how it turned out. What sort of lyrical themes and concepts do you often touch on within your music? How can your audience get to know you more personally through your music?
I feel like it's cliche to say, but it's often about relationships for me. They're one of the most complex things in society, really, when you think about it, like how do two people come together and live in harmony? We're all still trying to figure that out. But we should keep trying to figure that out, you know because life with another person is worth the effort. Another thing I write about a lot more these days is faith. Like faith in yourself, faith in God, that there's a plan for your life, you know? Everything happens for a reason. I think belief in yourself is super important, especially today. And you can't quit on what you love to do and what you want for your life. You just need to believe that anything is possible. What's next for you? I'm actually heading back into the studio right away. I've got plans for a few more releases for this year alone, which I'm really excited about. I haven't released a huge amount of music up to this point, but I'm really focusing on giving people as much of me as possible and just creating and enjoying the process. Hopefully, we can play some shows again this summer or in the fall, but yeah, I'm just super excited to be making more music and releasing it.
