About 'Tape Dead Light'
Well thought out electronic drumbeats compliment the raw sound of the electric guitar-work. You can almost feel the stress and release that Richard puts on his guitar both figuratively and literally as far as those “bendy” notes go. This is combined with pleasantly distorted effects that really drive this song. Marine’s sexy vocal performance lies comfortably on the on the instrumentation like a warm bed. With balance, Richard takes the low octave of the vocal part providing more depth and resonance.
It’s easy to over-produce and over-perform on a song recording. A good amount of professionals in the music industry will argue this. From our perspective, 'The 89' utilises “negative space” very strategically so that the song can open up and breathe once in a while. A great musician will not only know when to play but when NOT to play during the recording process. With that being said, 'The 89' definitely consist of great musicians.
You can classify the genre of 'The 89' as Indie, Alternative Rock, and Experimental.
