MERCY-MERCY
John De Laurence

Story

Miss You was recently recorded at Rockinghorse Studio Byron Bay and was engineered by Anthony Lycenko and Nicholas Wilson and mixed by Nicholas Wilson.  This preliminary upload has yet to be mastered and will likely be formerly released as part of a 5 track Self Titled EP, before Christmas.  The song tells a story of redemption as the lyrics reflect on messing up, running away, staying stuck and finally accepting a life line back to where they really want to be.

Story

Sunny summer days are all about the fun and Boardwax and Acetone evokes that sense in its building wave intro, the light and airy vocals, the thrum of the drums in the middle.  Recorded at Rockinghorse Studio near Byron Bay in 2017, this version is un-mastered and therefor not yet formally released but this is a hint of what is to come.  The title and first past of the refrain comes from a comment about how surf shops used to smell "like acetone and boardwax" and how they smell now "just like clothes".  John took some half baked lyrics to practice where Neil produced the intro riff and first part of the verse and with the marriage of the two Boardwax and Acetone was born. We are hoping to be able to release the whole song shortly.

Story

If we are lucky we get to grow old with lots of experiences and stories to talk about and to marvel too at how fast time goes.  But this is not a sad song.  It communicates an attitude of grabbing life by the .... hand and running with it.  It's about being motivated energised and also about being aware of where the blues journey first began.  This has yet to be mastered and therefore is not properly released yet but we hope to be able to make it fully available soon.
