Welsh artist and production machine Rachel K Collier delivers an ultra modern electro-pop meets house track with the release of her new new single “Rust” (will be released on July 14th via NIF Records/AWAL).
“The title ‘Rust’ was inspired initially by my old bike! I used it as a working title at first, but instead of ditching it, I had an idea of how I could transform it into a concept that I could really relate too. Everybody goes through good times and bad times in their relationships with the person closest to them. If issues are swept under the carpet and left unsaid, resentment slowly builds and so does a dark residue between two people. Rust is about recognizing that you have to make a conscious effort and do whatever it may take to keep your relationship fresh. The lyrics then kind of wrote themselves, but I spent a good haul in the studio refining the production -producing in Ableton gives you so much creative scope, I love it, it’s easy to get lost in infinite possibilities! The track began with the metallic riff which I then harmonized with a few chords -the beat followed along with the chorus and then finally the verses. I think the song has this kind of metallic timbre, which happened very organically as it was not a conscious decision to blend the lyrical content and sound design.”
