“I’ve Come Undone” playlist

I first wrote “Come Undone” in late 2012 and recorded the demo in early 2013, so it was too late to include on the MEMOIRS album. But I was able to finish it in time to include it on an EP/single of “Anchors Aweigh,” along with a few other songs. At the time, it was one drum loop the entire way through the song, and the vocals were pretty bad (in my retroactively applied opinion) because my voice was still so decimated. Despite the song being a non-album track (and one of the lighter numbers I’d ever written... Oh, hell, it was nothing but ear candy!), we cut a video of the song, which you can link to through the photograph below.

The video for “Come Undone” was directed by Eric Hackler and stars Taylor Russell as The Girl Who Disrupts Time and Space.


This year, I decided to re-record the vocals. While I was add it, I mixed the drum loop up a bit for some variety so I could have a better version of the song available for Pandora and Spotify play before the holiday season. Eventually I’ll get Paul in the studio to put live drums on it so I can put the song on a physical album, but for now I can at least be a lot less embarrassed by the vocals and arrangement than I was before. And I’ll have to double check to see whether the bass line is one that Tom Briant did, or whether it was a synth bass... If it’s the latter, I’ll have Julian Michalski throw some groovier live bass on it as well. (Tom did do the guitars, though, so Kudos to Tom for a wonderful job on those guitars!)


This SPOTIFY PLAYLIST features the song amidst the sounds that inspired it: a combination of disco, classic Motown and early 70s R&B, and some more recent retro-sounding soul music. Give it a listen, and share it around!
