We are thrilled to have worked with Moto Blanco and Full Intention, as well as Eric Kupper and Kris Di Angelis on this song. It’s just hit the Top 10 on Music Week’s Club Chart.
We believe the lyrics work so well because they are universal and uplifting. Everyone’s always complaining about not having enough time, always focusing on limitation. We’re saying you’ve got plenty of time to reach your goals – to get where you want to go – and don’t worry about competition. Everyone has their own niche to fill and no one else can be better at being you than you.
There’s some venom in this one. It’s more directed at a wider scope of people and the karmic belief that if you do something bad it will come back to you “like a boomerang” as we say in the song.
There’s actually an interesting story behind these lyrics. It’s one of the rare times that we started with a title and wrote a song around it. A while back here in LA, they did some major construction on a busy freeway called “The 405” and they were going to close the freeway for a whole weekend. The press was calling this event “Car-mageddon” because it was going to cause so many problems for drivers. (As Missing Persons once sang, “Nobody walks in L.A.”). Well, this moniker “Car-mageddon” stuck with us and we thought it would make for an interesting song title.
Of course, we couldn’t seriously sing about a freeway closure, so we thought about changing the “C” to a “K”. And so Karmageddon was born!
In You and Out of You is a love song directed to a girl, but the lyrics are also encouraging her to reach her full potential.
We’re comfortable writing about relationships, but like to keep an aura of mystery about the specifics.
We wanted these lyrics to reflect the flowing, dream-like ethereal beauty of the music. This is another inspirational song.
