February 2019: second song off "Calendar".
Artwork by Eli Wengrin
Back in 2012, I was living in Santa Barbara and feeling pretty socially isolated. I was at an open mic night when the person sitting next to me struck up a conversation.
We sat for an hour, talking about nothing in particular, when he suddenly told me he was dying from AIDS. My memory of the conversation is a little blurry, but from what I remember his family essentially disowned him when he told them he was gay and had contracted HIV.
He decided to move back to Santa Barbara, where he had grown up, because there was a specific rock that you could only see when the tide went out. He wanted to see that rock before he died. Later that same week I wrote this song.
The demo sat collecting dust in a private Soundcloud account for years, until Luca decided to re-record it for February's Calendar. He asked Sleap-e's Asia Martina Morabito to contribute vocals to the track, and did a truly amazing job on the production.
The song has suddenly reappeared in my life, the tide of the years pulling out to reveal a memory that was always hiding just under the surface. The details have slightly changed, the edges are smoother, eroded by the currents of time. But the rock was always there, waiting to resurface.
Well he comes back to this place
Where the rocks hide in the waves
While he's waiting for the
World to let him go
I'm surrounded by my peers so
I swallow all my fears while
I'm waiting for my chance to be
