Winter Blues (Demo) by Trafton
Winter Blues (Demo) by Trafton just released and the single is the first one-off the upcoming five track EP. This soft and somber song takes on a different tone than previous songs released by taking on a heavier topic. Here’s what Trafton had to say about the song:
This song is different from most that I write. It tells the story of characters that I imagined, not one about my own life. It’s two people who are in a cold, quiet winter with just each other. The dynamic of the relationship is complex and certainly not healthy, and I wrote the lyrics to explore mostly one side of it. I really focused on writing a solid song from a pop songwriting perspective and incorporated some lyrics that I don’t think I’d normally say (like directly saying pills, LA, and baby a million times). I recorded a totally stripped, acoustic version of it with just the piano (same one in the final version) and then brought it to my friend Jack to coproduce a demo with me that I was actually considering pitching out to other artists instead of performing myself. At some point during that production, I realized I definitely wanted to release it myself, but kept the (demo) in the title to differentiate it from the other songs on the EP.
Such a well-rounded artist, always coming from different angles! After hearing this version I can’t imagine any other artist doing it justice but I would love to hear them nonetheless!
