Sub Sonic / Super Sonic is my second album. It was recorded in Cape Town, South Africa, and Kaohsiung, Taiwan.
Track # 1 is about being happy – whatever unpleasantness you were experiencing, is now over, and you’re in the home stretch.
# 2 – partly in response to the crime rate in South Africa, as well as response to a slogan that did the rounds at one stage: “One settler, one bullet,” which I found offensive and frightening. And the title gives a nod to the Lene Lovitch song “My Lucky Number Is One.” Loved the nihilism.
# 3 about the macho front men put up, and the stress that creates.
# 4 is about wanting to destroy my demons. I want to wind the clock back to my childhood, and have a second chance at life, this time getting things right.
# 5 is a love song, a declaration of loyalty.
# 6 – this type of music is known as “farmer’s music,” and to shiver and to shake is what you do when you’re very excited. Very.
# 7 is me wishing I could get out of the small town I was growing up in, to something more exciting out there, even the traffic jams. That sounded so romantic.
# 8 – a love song for a lover who passed away.
# 9 – once again, a song about stupid macho bravado, how the roles men play get them to live lives they detest.
# 10 – about trying to understand and have compassion for someone else’s troubles.
Sub Sonic / Super Sonic is about the sounds which are either too low or too high for the human ear – something that the outsider in me can relate to. For more information, visit https://www.tradebit.com
