We’re not going to lie. Holy shit! This was an early song we recorded together in 2011 (mostly through a Blue Yeti USB microphone) when The Argument was just getting started. It’s so cool to see this song rediscovered 7 years later (by the NYT none-the-less).
From the story by Kirk Johnson:
Seattle has long been ambivalent about change and growth, especially its own, and so nostalgia for the viaduct is already flowing. A husband-and-wife team of composers who call themselves “The Argument” and record in their Seattle basement have even released a song about it.
“O, Viaduct, you’re outta luck, we put you up and we let you down,” the song goes. “They said you’d fall and kill us all, but you were tried and true.”
