CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - Seen This All Before
Paper Idol continues his dance-delusional journey to the Mania Days EP (out June 25th), with the penultimate piece of the puzzle ‘Seen This All Before’ – a track that highlights perfectly what makes the LA-based indie-electro producer so special. Notably, his consistent ability to mix quirky electronic synth and production, with underlying alternative melodies and grooves. You think you’ve heard it all before? Well, not quite like this.
Paper Idol explains: I wrote ‘Seen This All Before’ as a form of therapy. If you’re having issues with someone, you’re supposed to write them a letter but never send it. As I was doing the exercise, the song came to me and I immediately opened my laptop to record. I got the vocals in one or two takes and actually wrote half the lyrics mid-recording. That’s why I repeat so many words in the second verse! I kept the production simple and playful to match the childlike, delusional story.”
