Organa confront a slippery Shape Shifter in their timely and topical new single and video — premiering exclusively on Tinnitist.
The latest funky workout from the fun-loving California crew led by superstar bassist Corey McCormick (Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, Neil Young, Chris Cornell), Shape Shifter arrives just in time for Halloween — though its spooky villain comes straight from real life instead of the supernatural. Armed with McCormick’s neck-climbing arpeggios, some squelchy guitars, mellow horns and soulful backup vocals, singer Gabriel Velasquez and Organa face off against the selfish, soul-sucking shmoozers, users, losers and abusers that haunt our daily existence, taking and faking their way through life at our expense.
“The premise of the lyrics was based upon a bad experience that Gabe had with a musician in his very first band (the name of the dude has been omitted to protect the guilty),” Organa say in a press release. “The guy was a compulsive liar. Their band had a gig one night and the guy never showed up. He just disappeared and was never heard from again. Gabe and Corey collaborated on the lyrics, which included mutual experiences that they both experienced in this industry.”
Along with McCormick and Velasquez, Organa includes guitarist Nicholas Lewis, along with returning guest drummer / percussionist Emmanuel Cervantes. Shape Shifter was produced by McCormick, mixed by Mark Myers and McCormick and mastered by Bob Rice.
