Description
Chris and Ed are proud to present "Always Surrender", their take on summer and the ideal summer song, which centers around the wonders of the spontaneous summer romance.

Chris:
This was truly a collaborative effort with Ed providing the tasty guitar work and bridge instrumentation, while I (Chris) handled the drum and synth programming for the verse and chorus sections, as well as the tenor sax. We split the vocal and lyric duties for our own verses. Ed starts things off in the 1st verse. I handle the 2nd verse and we both trade off lines in the 3rd verse. Ed further doubled the main chorus melody and I provided the harmonies and lyrics.

The bridge is actually the first part of the song that we agreed on. It was something that Ed had lying around. From there we tried a few ideas until I came up with a simple chord progression on the organ and lively drum groove that ended up being the foundation for the verse. Tried some different concepts for a chorus until the one you hear came out of left field and seemed to work and have that swirling, waves crashing feel that we liked. At this point Ed brought in the sweet guitar riffs as well as the initial ideas of a partial singing/rap verse. The sax solo over the bridge was a 1st take recording after I played along for a bit to get the basic ideas down. In retrospect we had all these desperate music ideas that somehow gelled and spelled out the overall song feel that we were hoping for. The whole song fell into place with minimal fuss on the final mix and master. Lots of back and forth with comments about what was and was not working, but the verse and chorus have been locked and groovy, pretty much since they were first written. The biggest challenge was getting two white guys to rap (possibly for the 1st time) without sounding too lame. . . but maybe we do. . .points for trying.

Lastly, it's been an absolute pleasure working with Ed on this tune. He's a great musician with some killer song ideas and has an amazing guitar tone and feel for the music. I do hope to work with him again in the future as we are kindred spirits in many ways. It's been really cool to become friends with him over the past couple months.

Ed:
l just echo what Chris said. For the most part this was an absolute breeze to work on. I hope that wasn't because Chris was secretly doing all the work while I was asleep :) Initially I had a rough tune laid out. The bridge was the only thing that survived that and Chris worked the eventual verse and chorus around it. My guitar part during the verse was such fun to create. As chris had created a synth groove I stuck it on a loop, dissected it, closed my eyes and felt the mood. It made a nice change to be forced into playing a certain way to suit a style. I've not played that way in such a long time. It produced a slightly jazzy clean guitar part which i'm proud of. The chorus took a little longer for me to get as the "guitarist" side of me kicked in and I started playing over the top wah parts.... I tamed the beast eventually and settled on a more subtle style again. Most of the pain came from doing my vocals. I always seem to revert to a slight rap style to hide behind but with Chris to help we developed that into a sing/rap combo which I think really works. Our tonal qualities are quite similar apart from Chris has a cooler accent and more control :) Lastly i'd like to thank my girlfriend Evi for her spectacular performance in the bridge, its sets up Chris's flaming sax solo perfectly.

Ok and to finish. Big thanks to Chris for working like mad on this while I photoshoped girls in bikinis. I knew he'd be the one to mix it when he started confusing me with words like "Limiter" and "shelf EQ"?? He's full of groove and ideas. Good ones too which helps :) Always willing to listen and share his ideas. But best of all are his little stories of where his inspiration comes from :)
I look forward to working with him again in the future given more time who knows what we can do!?

Please enjoy our vision of summer. Thanks for stopping by.

Lyrics
(verse)
She set me on fire
with her eyes of burning desire
Instant attraction
Summer satisfaction
It was a perfect day
for getting a little bit closer
As we began the most
magical time in the sun

Rolling in the sand
Getting lost in the surf
passing the time in the liquid earth
Lazing on the beach
& getting cosy in the shade
sharing all the moments
of which my dreams are made
Summer soul mates
turning golden in the sun
our dog day fling was almost done
but i will always remember you
hold a place in my heart for you
always remember to

(chorus)
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
I can't believe my eyes
She drive me wild
She's paradise
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
Aphrodite's child, so wild
Drown me in Paradise

(verse)
I can remember
That blonde beautied specter
June thru September
Always together
Had it gone over
I would have given
my heart forever
Day or night
it always felt right

I was blown away
with a stunner like you
loved your moods
loved your groove
your thoughts, emeralds
that matched your eyes
with a face as bright
as the summer skies
Sweet sugar skin
those muscled curves
clothes scattered on the floor
a whisper of words
Bittersweet to remember
I will always remember you
Always remember to

(chorus)
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
I can't believe my eyes
She drive me wild
She's paradise
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
Aphrodite's child, so wild

(verse)
Open your mind to a summer of love
When I move on, a new one, a new love to dream of
Acting on things with no rhyme or reason
When I recall that sweet summer season
It may last weeks, it may last days
Deja-vu when my mind replays
In the arms of a lover as the summer unwinds
Forever to remember you when it shines

(chorus x3)
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
I can't believe my eyes
She drive me wild
She's paradise
Always surrender
to that summer fling splendor
Aphrodite's child, so wild
Drown me in Paradise

Summer soul! Great chorus. Love the octaves on the guitar. Love the bridge section with the sax solo.

The chorus
Is all chris. I didn't need to add much there besides some subtle octave sliding.
I had fun with octaves on this one. Kind of got a jazzy vibe going direct with the strat. Glad you like the change in direction at the bridge. That was made for a sax solo!
Cheers
Kicbal said 2527 days ago (August 21st, 2010)
The Bridge
The bridge is Ed all the way, I just added the sax over the top. It is a sweet groove and is easy to play along and solo over.

Thank You
Yes how do you capture the essence of a season? Especially when you're not writing the music face to face and are living halfway across the world. I suppose summer and romance etc. are universal enough to translate well. Haven't gotten around to everyone's songs, but will listen you your efforts shortly.

Hot and Cool at the same time. Even an old man like me can remember those Summer Fling love affair, and dream.

Love the music and the vox is all great, especially the harmony parts in the Choruses.

Great track guys. love it.

Thanks
tokai said 2527 days ago (August 21st, 2010)
ooohhh yeah
Excellent, the two vocals are sweet. So this is what you been doing in your various spaces, what an outcome. Everything in the mix is clear and sharp sounds like you bloke had a good time. Loving the brake down with the alt vocal cool touch. The sax, yeah that makes this tune along with the slick guitar chops, subtle and well played.
Like this chaps, well played.

First thank you. I defer to Ed's tasty guitar for giving my basic chord progression its style and relaxed attitude. Love his clean guitar tone and jazzy feel. The sax just seems to fit easily in its accompanyment parts and the solo was a joy to play.

for getting the ball rolling with the random pairings. We both did the best we could with this. The fact that it turned out different than either of us 1st imagined is part of the magic of creating music and of working with someone else.

Summer Satisfaction
Ya... it feels just like this. This has a euro/ west coast /urban feel and there is Kicbal sax sittin right in the groove- not overpowering. Diggin the keyboard / guitar unison thang goin on. Good collab guys! The horn stabs at the end are to die for.

Kicbal said 2527 days ago (August 21st, 2010)
Many thanks
I guess a euro/west coast mashup is about right, geographically speaking ; ) The sax was one of the last things to be added and I didn't want to overdo it, but I love the accompaniment during the verses almost as much as the solo. Yes the stabs came to me right at the end, as I was listening to the mix and adjusting level. Reminds me of something the Police would do at the end of their songs.

Sweet collision of styles on this, with a strong fusion undertow. Your voices and different approaches work really well together, and the deep production gives this an easy, chill vibe. Unclassifiable, confident and professional. Carry on.

the back and forth speak/sing was an excellent idea. the chorus was sexy, smooth, rich - GREAT! that sax is something else, whether heard very subtly or let loose - it's a thing of beauty. good percussion, sweet levels on that bass. The changes in the progression created a very cool mood. i surrendered....and what a way to go! anne

And that's one of my fav genres... Jazzy Pop, and oh so well done! I'm a fan! Keep 'em comming!
This is the one type of enviroment that I love rapping. Jazzed up and short bursts. To me this is the way rapping should be done, instead of an entire song in monotone. I like that about Jason Mraz, and I like it about this too! Nicely done!

Thanks to ShavingBigDaddyFredCIAMLoob
Thanks for the recent blast of comments. It was a treat to work on this song, because of the collaboration with Ted23. I agree, short burst of rapping mixed with singing and actual instruments and music is the best way to showcase different elements and genres within a song, that way nothing outstays its welcome.

Man you can sing.
This is like wow. Smooth like Sting. Unique arranging a little War influence. Brings memories of growing up in Michigan. The transitions are smooth needs a little more panning. Strong contradictions that work. I like the mix of American Culture with a Beatle zip. Great work.
