Eldoradio – 242 (Song)

Eldo..WAS? Ihr seid hier weder in eurem eigenen Eldorado noch im gleichnamigen Dortmunder Campus-Radio sondern bei der schwedischen Indie-Rock-Kapelle Eldoradio gelandet. Die veröffentlichen pünktlich zum Sommer ihr Mini-Album „Cult“ und stellen im Interview das schmissige „242“ vor.

How did you write the track in the very beginning?

The track was written by me (Thomas) when I was in the midst of a sleepless night (hence the title “2:42”)

What can you tell us about recording the song?

When we were in the studio we had some difficulties finding the right sound on the synthesizer, usually, we don’t use synths. But after a lot of twisting and turning, we found the right sound for the song, which I think turned out great

What’s your personal favorite moment of the track?

Personally my favorite moment I the third verse, because of the way the music is arranged for an explosion after the lyrics; “this feeling can’t be true at 2:42” when that part comes it reminds me of the feeling of being paranoid and thinking too much when it’s far too early in the morning.

How can I understand the lyrics?

I think the lyrics aren’t too complicated, I tried to keep it pretty straightforward. As I said it’s about me initially not being able to sleep and thinking about things that turned me paranoid in the night. Sometimes when you are in that state things seem a bit unreal. Or maybe it’s just me hehe.

What’s your favorite one-liner of the song?

Probably the first line.

Why did you put the track at the second position of the new mini-album?

Because it would be a great way to start of the album. I never wrote ”Pipedreams” with the intention of it being an actual song even though it turned out to be. So on the album it’s sort of like an intro into “2:42”.

At what point of a concert would you most likely play it?

It all depends, but most likely late in the set. Probably one of the last four songs.

At what moment should I play the song?

Whenever you feel like it.
