You know the kinds of songs that you listen to, and suddenly everything feels a little bit better? ‘Far Away’ by Feed Me & Kill The Noise is exactly that song. When I saw that the two were linking up yet again, I expected something a bit darker and heavier much like “Thumbs Up For Rock and Roll.” I couldn’t be more wrong, and that is totally Ok!
Far Away was an idea we started about 18 months ago at Feed Me’s studio. We both really wanted to try to do something together that was melodic and had some kind of unique vocal. -Kill The Noise
So the two locked themselves in the studio, and decided that in order to get the sound they wanted in their vocals they would take a page out of 30 Seconds to Mars book and record a choir of children to sing it.
We wrote the last few lyrics to the song literally on the ride to the school which was just outside of london first thing in the morning. Something meaningful, something simple, something open for interpretation, but most importantly something appropriate for children to sing! Which is more challenging than you might think!
we turned up, met the headmaster of the small schoolhouse, set up our recording equipment and jumped right to the school gymnasium full of 8 year old children, terrifying! It was particularly nerve wracking to me, because i was the only guy with an american accent. Every time i spoke about 60 little faces turned to me inquisitively like “this guy talks kinda funny, I’m not so sure about him.” – Kill The Noise
The music video is slated to premiere on Saturday on Adult Swim, so keep an eye out.
