Here’s the thing about over polished tracks.
It’s like listening to a reality TV star with thick fake tan, botox in every facial muscle and no real personality.
With shallow ideas quantised, auto tuned and aggressively EQ’d we’d hope a meaning could be polished into it.
But substance isn’t polished into a track, it’s born through a carefully crafted intention.
If your energy is mostly spent in the polish stage (as an artist), there is a danger of becoming a plastic merchant.
And plastic gets cheap real quick.
