WHEN SAINTS GO MACHINE ‘MANNEQUIN’ – CLOSE REMIX: “I COULD BE CRYING AND YOU COULD BE DANCING”
When Saints Go Machine’s new single ‘Mannequin’ gets a rework from Will Saul’s new alter-ego CLOSE. The track is taken from their splendid album ‘Infinity Pool’.
On the lyrics of the track singer Nikolaj Vonsild says: “They’re very personal. It’s always been like that with my lyrics. I could tell you what I was thinking about when I wrote ‘Mannequin’ if it was about something trivial, but it’s not. Whatever I say it would be so simple that it would sound stupid compared to all the thoughts that run through your head and end up on paper.
If you say a song is about losing what’s important to you or feeling that everything’s a mess or you’re in a dark place that’ll take something away from the song instead of giving something to it.
The songs have words and they are supposed to create images that make you feel something that you can relate to, whatever it might be. It’s not about what the artist thinks the song is about. I could be crying and you could be dancing. That’s one of the things I really appreciate and love about music.”
