Wash

Album: Stanley Climbfall (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jason Wade said of this song: "'You was over me like the rain/ You wash over me like the sunshine' the truth is, you can't have one without the other. You can't truly know happiness without having experienced sadness. A lot of the guitar sounds I got on this record came about by experimentation, which was very cool. I turned all these frequency distortion pedals up at the same time and started playing these harmonics and weird wah-wah things, and some crazy stuff just came out of it. I went back into the studio later and tried to duplicate it, but I couldn't." >>
