Behind the Song
"The Wrong Side" by The Joy Formidable
"'The Wrong Side' came together very quickly in our studio in Southern Utah. Went from demo form to finished track before the sun went down. The album has renewed energy and colour and we loved experimenting, toying with guitars and taking our sound to new territory. There’s a collage-like feel to the production, space for layers coming in and out and then contrasted against this dense, aggressive section.
In its most stripped down form, the song has this stark poignancy, it’s very personal about coming to terms with depression and the mistakes that you’ve made. It’s thanking a loved one for the person that they are and trying to reconcile loving yourself a little more. It’s vulnerable and defiant." ~ Ritzy, The Joy Formidable www.thejoyformidable.com
