Same Damn Door
Dilly Dally Alley
It opens with a high BPM groove laid down by Dilly drummer Ben Ehrlich. Slowly, other voices trickle in to accompany Sophia’s angry diatribe. Maxwell Voda creeps in with a soon-to-be roaring bass groove, doubled by a thrumming synth that gets equally as deafening. Levi Schwartzberg joins in with his sultry Rhodes chords, and so does Sophia with her melodious guitar. Mitch Van Laar and Denny Carlson enter the stream of crescendoing noises with snaking, chromatic horn lines, until the whole band drops out for Sophia’s jaded conclusion to her angry rant: “Is a door that leads to heaven just the same damn door that leads to hell?” Thus commences a song that, within the span of just 3 minutes, will make banging your fists, stomping your feet, and maybe even quitting your job all too irresistible.
