ATL's Track for the Day #45

Tuesday 11th November, 2014
Daveit Ferris - All I Wanted

He says: 'All I Wanted' is an honest interpretation of unrequited love. An ode to possibility. The song was recorded in the summer of 2014 for my '365 Sparks' project in my home studio. A simple song that intentionally doesn't deviate from the classic pop-rock formula. This was probably the audio-baby inspired by one of my many Weezer binges. I think the chorus lyric says it all : All I wanted / was one moment / just to pretend / we're alive'

We say: Quite possibly the most prolific artiste in the country, Mr. Ferris has released not just a number of solo records, but a selection of poetry compilations, all since his old band - The Mascara Story - disbanded in 2005. This track is particularly strong - a typically thoughtful and uplifting four minutes of noisy emo-punk.
