…and this song is about the night. Or at least what can happen when strange things align and linked events occur, at night.
One night, I received not one, but two text messages from ex-girlfriends. They were both written in a way that gave me a bit of a psychological mindfuck. I copied the texts, took some creative liberties, created a musical backdrop using Fred’s emotive chord progressions and arpeggios, and recorded this song by singing the messages with my own spin on how I received them.
“To Recognize a Liar” is a 3-part song; the first two parts have me singing from the perspective of each ex, respectively, and the third part is from my perspective.
Assembling this song took me through a mental journey that helped me understand why former lovers sometimes send text messages in the middle of the night. And it helped me recognize TWO liars.
