Darkwave = MC Squared

This song is about our youth, and the nostalgia thereof.

The lyrics are much inspired by the German poet Rilke:

"I asked for my childhood and it has come back, and I feel that it is just as difficult as it was before, and that it has been useless to grow older." - "Malte Laurids Brigge" by Rainer Maria Rilke

"We Might As Well Have Stayed Young" was released on The Enright House's debut album, 'A Maze and Amazement' (A Low Hum, 2007).

    @Ariel X: Drum sound is most definitely not standard. They were played by Nick Harte of the Shocking Pinks (DFA). Nick played a toy drum kit with two paintbrushes of differing sizes (really cheap cymbals etc) and we recorded them with only a stereo set of Rode NT5's. I think the sound fits the song quite nicely, although I totally wish we would have used better hats and rides. Anyhow, glad you like the song man.

    GREAT song! I really like the emotion conveyed, and the voice--nice. Seems too brief, though; and there's something about the EQ on the drums that doesn't sound right to my ears. Overall though, I really dig this track.
