Here's some more info on the background and inspiration for this song:
Amateur Telephony actually started from guitar line that I planned on using for another project. I had been listening to a lot of The Cure’s Disintegration and really like the vocal tones and spacey guitar lines they used to create a really wide soundstage. I wanted to use minimal synths in this one, so I used a bass guitar and let the song lean on driving guitar lines. I programmed the drums in Logic and then sent the track to a session drummer to get a studio rock drum feel, which is what’s on the final track.
The inspiration for the song, and really the EP as a whole, came from the struggles some of my hometown friends had with serious drugs. Amateur Telephony is about the desire and unsuccessful efforts to get through to friends that you care about and want to help turn around. The point of view talks about being unable to communicate to someone close to you, and realizing that they’re on their own journey, and need to want to change from within themselves. That what they need from you during that period isn’t solutions, answers, or judgment, but positivity and simply someone to lean on.
