"Take The Blame" wasn't supposed to exist, according to Snap Infraction front man Steve Karsch.
"The original plan was for `Once In A Lifetime Daydream` to be the A-side, and we had another nearly done song slated as a B-side, but I was struggling with finishing it. We were about a week away from our (self-imposed) deadline for the single, so I just quickly wrote `Take The Blame`, which ended up making it to the A-side."
And so we have a rollicking, in-your-face, straight-up rock tune; an accidental A-side, if you will.
Not to be outdone, the flip side, `Once In A Lifetime Daydream`, offers a completely different feel. Steve explains:
"I wanted a song that captured that poolside, beachy, chill summer vibe. I had the chords for the longest time and then one morning the chorus came, so I laid down a rough vocal and then put the harmonies on and that was it."
Of course, it wasn't quite that easy. To fill out the sound, Snap Infraction recruited Philly multi-instrumentalist Keaton Thandi to add percussion.
"As soon as I had the basic song structure, I knew Keaton would know just what to do to bring the track to the next level. He's brilliant."
Dare we say double A-side? We'll leave you, the listener, to answer that question yourself.
