Mark Dabney - Designed Mistake (Track from NEW THING)
Designed Mistake was the first solo song I wrote this past FAWM, and it’s the reason I put this album together. Looking at a month of songwriting in the days before FAWM started, I wasn’t sure how I’d approach it, what style, what sound, what direction I wanted to go. Then February 1st, I wrote this.
Rob and I have had discussions about what tracks to post here as previews for the album. We originally crossed this one off the list because an early version had been posted here before. But this song solidified the direction I wanted to go for an album. It’s direction and sound is why NEW THING is happening.
I hope you enjoy it.
New Thing, coming May 15th
Yesterday we posted our second collaboration from FAWM, stemming from our Anonymous ask box request. We’ll have more collaborations to post here throughout the month, but we’ll also be posting some of our solo efforts.
This is my first solo track for FAWM. A couple years ago, I wrote an album of new wave punk electronica. Now with a few more years recording and production under my belt, I find myself circling back to further explore this sound. I’ll probably try a few different styles this year, but I’m hoping to come back to this.
It’s a 6 minute song, which was really not my original intent. It’s where it wound up, though. I think it moves nicely.
