Song Production: ‘European Song’ by Steve Stroud

Lavalamp Album


So, Brexit happened. That was a big deal right? Jesus. I voted remain, but rather than moan and fight with everyone on social media, I thought I’d be better off writing a song.

I wrote and recorded this and ‘Just a Boy’ in a frenzied week of politically charged activity. Poor Cubase didn’t know what hit it.

Anyway, the song that came out was just a stream of consciousness, obscure, semi cathartic shout . It’s nice, quite a lot of people got in touch to say they like it. Thanks! x

D.J. Waters, an Australian Fine Art Photographer who’s based in Germany, asked if he could use the song on his latest promo video. I was very pleased to say yes. I took out the kids voices on the coda for him, but other than that, it’s the same. You can watch and listen to it below

Back to the music, here’s a link to the whole song. See what you think?
