LISTEN: Comrad, ‘I Might Be Fine’

Jun 23, 2016

LISTEN: Comrad, 'I Might Be Fine'

Artist: Comrad
Hometown: Stamford, CT
Song: "I Might Be Fine"
Album: 10 Feet Away
Release Date: August 2016

In Their Words: "I wanted this song to be a sarcastic inner monologue of a guy who's trying to convince himself he's totally fine on his own. He's trying to eat healthy by himself, shop for furniture by himself, and make love by himself. I try to write lyrics that are a bit different, maybe make you smile sometimes. I love writers like Paul Simon, Fiona Apple, and Ani DiFranco for that reason.

It's one of the first songs I ever wrote on ukulele. The only reason I bought a ukulele is because of the scene in The Jerk where Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters sing a duet of 'You Belong to Me.'  Such a great instrument — great tone — and turns your chords upside down a bit. Chord progressions you've played a hundred times on guitar sound totally different." — Comrad
