Down Now

Album: One Time Bells (2002)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Written by lead singer/drummer Nick Stumpf and guitarist/keyboardist Josh Wise. They were listening to a lot of Radiohead at the time and that sound can be heard in parts of the song. Stumpf says, "tons of artists influence the group... there are too many to name."
  • Since there are several tracks of drums on the studio version of the song, Stumpf had to alter his beat in order to perform it live. This is the exception to the rule for the band since they usually try to perform songs live as close to the studio version as possible.
