"Graphic Equalizer" and "A Touch Too Much"

We are excited to tell you that our forthcoming single Graphic Equalizer has been sent off to the final stages of mixing and mastering! This song is being remixed by Juno Dreams! We are so proud of this track! It's very unique and totally retro synth-pop!

In the meantime, we've begun to work on a new song called A Touch Too Much! Hoyt and I have already laid down the demo vocals for this new song so things are moving forward quite steadily. 

In conclusion, expect to few new singles. Watch this space for more details surrounding both "Graphic Equalizer" and "A Touch Too Much"! 🎤

I Live 4 U (alt-rock demo mix)

Candy Apple Blue - I Live 4 U (alt-rock demo mix) ft. Nick Bramlett

Early this year, we released our song I Live 4 U featuring Nick Bramlett. I recently found this alt-rock mix that we were working hard on but decided not to use on my computer. I thought that it would be fun to share it with you guys so that you could hear the progression of the song.

The song's arrangement went through many changes during its production phase. At the time, we really couldn't decide which direction to take the song in. The track is a grab bag of pop, r&b, and 90's alternative rock. Taking the song in this more alternative rock direction just didn't feel right to us. It just didn't sound like a Candy Apple Blue record. 

So, for the official version of the song, we decided to add more synthesizers to the mix and changed up the time signature a bit. The official version of I Live 4 U can be heard here:

For the sake of archival purposes, we decided to make this alternative rock demo mix of I Live 4 U available for the first time here on our official YouTube channel.
