Writing an album is never going to be easy, and sometimes the struggles of recording can be hidden away. However, Against The Current vocalist Chrissy Costanza has opened up about her struggles with recording ‘In Our Bones’ and her look on recording new music.
In a heartfelt post, Chrissy gave her thanks to writer Sarah Hudson who helped on the record and talked about the struggles of writing about such emotional feelings.
“The process of writing In Our Bones was not what I expected. It was exhausting, the constant struggle to find my voice while being expected to perform at top speed day in and day out caused me to lose a lot of myself in the process. We had the opportunity to work with a lot of amazing writers, but too often I’d tell myself “they’re better, they know best” and sacrifice things that were of paramount importance to me. It left me questioning my own power, and the validity of my own feelings. And then during the process of writing this record, I got to work with someone who let my soul saturate both of the songs we worked on. She helped me write about Julius’ death in a way that was so cathartic, I cried out of relief the moment I got home. For a moment, the pain had been relieved, and I had a little more understanding. She helped me write about the war in my head, with all of the little voices constantly telling me that I’m nothing. Once again. It was cathartic, I felt the weight drop off my shoulders. She was such an electric yet calming presence in the room and writing with her felt spiritual. I don’t think I ever thanked her properly, so thank you @sarahhudsonxx – the two songs we wrote together brought me so much peace and healing, I am so grateful to have been able to work with you.”
