Paranormal Love Pervades Worldwide Groove Corporation's Newest Release

Don't bother locking up your daughters because this randy apparition can go through walls. What began as a fast paced pitch opportunity ended up yielding one of Worldwide Groove Corporation's most creative musical creations as of late. Their newest release "It's You I Love" chronicles the impossible longing between a creeping ghost and his human object of desire in such a way that it might leave listeners both "turned on and grossed out at the same time" according to Ellen Tift, songwriter and vocalist for WGC. Gritty synths set the dark and haunting tone of the track, soon joined by retro guitars over a mid tempo groove. This is topped off by a smoldering intimate performance by guest vocalist Nathan Barlowe, band member of the industrial rock band Five Knives, who joined Tift for the steamy duet.

"Sometimes we have opportunities to pitch songs for film and TV placement, and we might decide to see what we can come up with before the deadline if we are able to set aside our other work for a couple of days," says Kurt Goebel, programmer and producer for Worldwide Groove Corporation. "I started the track on a Tuesday morning, and by mid-afternoon I had something for Ellen to write a lyric and melody over. I had planned to have a writing appointment with Nathan Barlowe the next morning, but when he showed up we informed him that he would be singing on our track, and he was gracious enough to oblige. Then the song was mixed, mastered, and turned in by Wednesday afternoon."

Writing and recording songs in 1 or 2 days is not unusual for many songwriter/producers when licensing opportunities arise, and often there is a specific target they must try to hit. "With this pitch, the reference track was an eerie love song with a really low male vocal kind of droning the melody, so when I sat down to flow out the lyric, I knew my concept needed to have some sort of built in creepiness to it," says Tift. "Choosing to make the song from a phantom made the whole thing come together quickly. Later, when we decided this song would be our own release, I had to go back and write a second verse from the love interest of the ghost telling her side of it. That galvanized the concept, and it worked out beautifully." Tift intentionally took the lyrics beyond the safety zone of mainstream pop music with phrases like "the taste of my kiss is ethereal bliss on your tongue" to evoke a greater emotional response from the listener. "I purposely used words like that because it sort of jolts the listener a little, which is what this song is intended to do," states Tift.

The otherworldly lyrics combined with the altered notes of the scale in the song make this one of Worldwide Groove Corporation's most moody and harmonically dark songs to date. "It's You I Love" is the 9th consecutive monthly music release since their Year of the Groove began in July of 2014. The other singles and EPs released for this collection have ranged from ominous broods to easy mindless chillout to fun and quirky electropop. No matter what the emotional tone of their tracks, Worldwide Groove Corporation keep it all glued together with their love of electronic elements and hypnotic beats.
