Hebdo has just released “Didn’t Have a Voice,” a grumbling tumbleweed of a song, wandering between Jack White’s grating rock and The Heligoats’ winding indie. Columbus, Ohio’s indie troubadour says of the song, “At it’s core lies desperation, Tragedy, and ironically enough, Optimism. Loss is Gained, and nothing is lost. It’s a linear story, which is not always common in my tunes. I often like to lead the listener down other avenues of interpretation. There’s resolution to the story, but not a settling one. Struggle is alive and well.”
The song was recorded in the Appalachian foothills of Athens, Ohio by Josh Antonuccio (Adam Torres, Southeast Engine, Playing to Vapors) and mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, The Shins, Liam Gallagher, Dr. Dog, Lucinda Williams). Two takes to analog tape was all it took.
