CENTRAL DOGMA (ROCK REDUX) // This song is about abandonment, and the observations that come from an absence of resentment. It’s also about DNA being passed down from parent to child. But more importantly, THIS IS THE FULL BAND ROCK SONG!!!

Think back, dear Supercos, to December 24, 2013. The first song cleanwhiteroom and I ever wrote together, and the first song that I ever wrote PERIOD, just hit the internet, kicking off the Superconducting Supercolliders project. What started as a fake band from Designations Congruent With Things has since turned into a real band. 10 amazing songs have been written and released since Central Dogma, with plenty more to come. I’ve learned a little more about how to write and record music since then (with tips, help and wisdom from cleanwhiteroom, elementals and Friend King). For the first time in my life, I got in front of an audience and performed some of these songs at an original music/songwriters night! I’ve acquired new gear, equipment, anxieties (let’s be real, here) and confidence since then. And I’ve made some new friends. I’m so happy for all of it.
The Supercos are far from being finished (I only speak for myself, but I’m legit confident that this is the just the beginning, obviously), but I wanted to take a look back at where this all started for me, because I am a sappy and sentimental person. I re-recorded Central Dogma as a rock song because I couldn’t do that three months ago. And how awesome is that? Now I’m going to stop typing before I start crying. Thanks everyone.

WHOA! This is quite the song makeover. I love it; a little bit of a reggae feel to this one. Very cool. This is almost an entirely new song. Really great job. The “band” sounds fantastic!
