New Release Section: Martha and the Muffins, “Save It For Later”

VIA PRESS RELEASE | “We pitched a cover of it to the Sex Education producers who were looking for a new version to use in their third season trailer.”

“We recorded it in three days, and normally we would spend a lot more time refining things like the vocals. However, the lack of time actually contributed to capturing the spirit of the song while adding our own colours. The music supervisor loved it, but the whole idea was discarded by the producers. “Just hold my hand while I come…to a decision on it.” Clever…would’ve worked really well in a Sex Education trailer!

This left us with a pretty catchy version of the song without a home. We suggested to our manager that maybe all of the artists on his Popguru/ Confidence Emperors roster could do a cover, to put “Save It For Later” to good use! And so the Coverama album out May 20th came about.

We added a few embellishments that made our cover almost like an early Martha and the Muffins song. Something about that interesting open tuning Dave Wakeling used on the original inspired my chiming 12 string electric guitar hook. They seem to belong to the same world.

For the video collage, we collected little objects from around the house and random images from the Internet, working intuitively.”
