Cleveland-based band Ottawa released their second single, “The Good Kind”, yesterday onNew Noise Magazine. This is the catchy follow-up single to “Strangers”, which came out a couple of weeks ago. Keep an eye out for more new music set to release later this month.
“‘The Good Kind’ is one of those song ideas that we kicked around for what felt like forever. We liked the song and always played it in our live set but felt it was just a little off and couldn’t quite wrap our heads around what it was lacking,” explains Jeremy (bass). During our recording session over the winter we decided to give it a shot and that’s when it all came together. Will Hooper (guitar) and I re-wrote a few of the parts we were playing and just those minor revisions changed it from a chunky rock song to a more melodic indie tune. Our in-house effects-guru Tim Czajka (guitar) and Matt Goldman (producer) combined a few pedals and came up with this awesome 80’s chorus sound for the guitar that gave the song a unique new-wave gloss.
