Rich In Love At Timbre (Part 3)

This post has been lying on our WordPress draft section since Oct 7. Completely forgot about it. Last month was pretty tight with lots of gigs and activities. So here goes…

…continued from Rich In Love At Timbre (Part 2)

Our Final Set at The Substation

Right after chilling out for a bit at Timbre @ Old School we headed straight to The Substation for the usual soundcheck. A few minutes before our set a queue was forming outside. We played to what seemed like a full house bar for that evening. Many guests who came to see us the previous night were also present to witness our last gig in SG.

We were far more relaxed, like we’re in a familiar place. It felt like home.

Kate and Burt at The POP Shoppe!

We’d like to further share the results of our performance (originally blogged at Lilystars Records) in that dark pub where we always like to play called Route 196 during The POP Shoppe! tribute to Burt Bacharach on March 3. We are lucky to have Kate Torralba as part of the line-up of artists performing and even luckier to have her on stage with us the whole time.

She recently recorded piano for one of our songs in Bread And Circuses EP called “My Life’s Arithmetic Means” and we were able to jam it together for the first time live that night. It was the first song and she never left our side, jamming with all our Bacharach covers, a couple more original songs, and sang a lady version of “Girlfriend In A Coma” by The Smiths. Fun night! We ended up closing the bar at 3:30am.

“My Life’s Arithmetic Means” Piano Instrumental (Bonus Hidden Track)

To those who already have a copy of Bread and Circuses EP we are grateful for your support. But you might like to know, there’s a bonus hidden track after the last song — an instrumental version of track two — “My Life’s Arithmetic Means“. Listen to the original track below:

My Life’s Arithmetic Means – The Camerawalls

Kate Torralba, our guest musician on the record, made impromptu contributions to the song. She was very kind enough to appear in the studio even on a very short notice without the benefit of a song study, and record piano and keyboard sections on the spot. She was amazing!

Before actual takes we sat down to review her on the chord progressions and sections of the song while catching up and exchanging talks about love and relationship failures. A conversation that somehow led us to a conclusion that we would both fare better with a foreign prospect. Kate even funnily suggested to hook me up with her  friends. “I am a good matchmaker!” she quips. To which I just plainly shrugged.

Robert Javier was the one on board the console at Sonicstate Audio, recording and guiding her as our producer. The clip below is the exact recording of a portion of the short bonus track which you can hear after a two-minute silence preceded by the last track “Bread and Circuses” in the EP.

Kate Torralba is a singer-songwriter-pianist and a fashion designer. She is currently working on her solo debut album.
