they kinda make Nate lose control.
ITS BACK IM CRYING
WHAT IS THIS AND WHERE HAS THIS BEEN MY WHOLE LIFE
“The record is all about finding a world where you can be kind to yourself in. ‘I Wanna Get Better’ [is] the story of my existence so far and a lot of the things I struggled with,” including a damaging acid trip and the death of his sister 10 years ago. “A lot of things on the album, including this song, are about loss,” Antonoff says. “It feels joyous, but for me it’s very desperate.” (x)
“We all made plans to meet in New York immediately. Looking back I didn’t know what I wanted to come out of this. I think I just wanted to prove to myself that I wasn’t completely nuts, but in hindsight I must have been, because four days later we were sitting in Jack’s living room going over some of the music I had sent them. The first song we had worked on was “Benson Hedges” (the demo, which we record that very first day, is up on our MySpace). I remember Jack understanding it right away. He picked up the guitar and played it exactly the way I had heard it. Then there’s Dost: I had explained to him that when we would record the song properly, I would want a gospel choir. He said that he wanted a crack at it for the demo, so Jack and I left him alone for a while and tried our best not to laugh when we heard him singing so many different variations of “holyghost” from the other room. If only we had known what it was going to sound like when it was all said and done. My jaw dropped - in thirty minutes his one voice had recorded all of the harmonies and sketched out one heck of a gospel sound. We proceeded to collectively put more bells (literally) and whistles (the triangle) on the song and once Jack and Andrew had mixed it, we listened in a car in the garage and I had chills. If I had any fears or concerns, it was right then, once the song finished, that I knew I couldn’t have been in a better place. When we left New York after that first batch of demos, we knew that things were going to really change for us.”
