In the creation of "Trust Me," my role was intricately weaving the tapestry of its sound with electronic elements that I both composed and played. From the modern, eerie-sounding synth lines that set a gripping tone to the mellow, soft piano melody that offers a soothing counterbalance, my contribution was about striking a balance between intensity and tranquillity.
The use of piano across a few tracks on the album “State of Disgrace” was a deliberate choice, aiming to support and enhance the overall vibe of each piece. In "Trust Me," the piano isn't just an instrument; it's a narrator that guides the listener through the evolving emotional landscape of the track, complementing the raw energy of rock with the nuanced subtlety of electronic music. This track, for me, was not just about layering sounds but about crafting an experience that resonates on a deeper, more visceral level.
