The Artist: The Narrative
The Song: “Chasing a Feeling”
Fun Fact: This Long Island duo met on Craigslist.
Songwriter Says: “‘Chasing a Feeling’ is about accepting that life keeps moving forward, whether or not you’re ready for it. Being indecisive doesn’t stop everything around you from changing, and getting swept up in a really difficult moment in your life can feel endless but eventually it passes. It’s about time, how you spend it, and how it eventually brings you clarity and comfort.
Jesse [Gabriel] and I have a really supportive and collaborative writing process. This song in particular started on piano with a melody and a lyric. From there, we put together a drum machine beat and started exploring the feel of the song. We knew for this song we wanted a certain kind of guitar riff, and this is one of the first times we really focused on that jointly. Once we get a song in a good place, we invite some talented friends of ours to come play drums and bass and build the song more off of that collective energy.”
