TVD Takeover | True Womanhood

Because this week's Takeover guest, True Womanhood is doing a fine job of bringing other band's music to you, we thought it smart to put one piece together with TW tracks for the uninitiated. So, without further adieu...

Nite Prowlers | We wrote this song when we were listening to a lot of Lil Wayne. The song is almost entirely made up of samples we made by clanging pieces of metal around in a mile-long sewer tunnel + bass guitar, 808 drumz, and vocals—all run through a severely malfunctioning tape delay.

The Grey Man | Reworking of an old song that appeared on our first demo CD. This time we ran our vocals through the malfunctioning tape delay and replaced the guitars with mellotron strings and samples from an old tack piano.

Last Rites | We wrote this song around a week before recording it and it ended up being one of our favourite tracks from the session, then we immediately forgot how to play it and it has never been played live. There’s a secret hidden in the lyrics that nobody has figured out yet, if anyone can figure it out, we will send you a copy of the upcoming release!

Dream Cargoes | This is a cool song. We would be stoked to hear this on a record. To record it, we simply put a Shure SM57 up against the grill and compressed the shit out of it.
