Growing Smaller / Come

Composition: Oikarinen, Ylilauri, Veijalainen
Lyrics: Ylilauri

Comments by Matti:

  • A haunting song. The text was inspired by Marko’s guitar tracks and his bass riff.

Comments by Oikku & Ville:

  • Marko’s original 4-track demo had the the guitar parts and the main bass riff. Matti did a few takes of improvised vocals and there we had the first version of the song. But that was not the end of it…
  • Ville created the bass melody in the middle section. Divine inspiration and composing credits again 🙂
  • The bass line is doubled note for note all the way through.
  • Once upon a time, it was in Bluesmoon, Raahe, we performed a grunge-version of the song live . Playing the original arrangement requires a very silent audience, which is not usually the case in a club environment.
