Tommy Countach’s new single “Alright” is serving a mix between Synthwave and Nu-Disco with sonical influences from late 70s and early 80s funk records. In the song he sings "I wish I was better, (...) I wish it didn't matter" hinting at the urge to let loose in a highly demanding society. The dilemma to hide weaknesses and feelings to stay competitive and respected, but also knowing it is wrong and unhealthy. Nevertheless during the production phase Tommy Countach changed the song from a ballad to a danceable mid tempo track to give the listener a more hopeful experience and bring an almost ironic context to the lyric.
“Alright” was written, recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by Tommy in his home studio in Berlin. Typical funky 70s Prophet 5 chords meet a synthwave-ish rolling bass provided by an old school Nord Lead 2x. The synth lead was created with a classic Oberheim accompanied with disco style electric guitars and an iconic digital Wavestation Clavinet.
Release date: July 20, 2023
