Behind The Tracks: Andrew Thomases - Perfection (Single) (2022)



“Perfection” is a song about self-realization. When I was younger, I was always striving for perfection. I wanted to do everything exactly right, and be just how everyone wanted me to be. But then I realized that being perfect was unachievable, and the constant quest for perfection just leads to dissatisfaction and unhappiness.

This is the message in “Perfection.” It is ok that you are not perfect all of the time. We should all be happy and satisfied with how we are and what we are. We all make mistakes, and that is ok. As the song’s refrain says, “the people who think they're perfect are the ones who are flawed.”

“Perfection” has a '80s or '90s rock sound, with a heavy, rapid bass line that has a bit of a funk feel. There are staccato guitar lines with some chorus effects, as well as some catchy retro guitar licks with some nice delay. The intro has a cool synth line that repeats throughout the song. Overall, there is a bit of an airy feel about this track, and there are some hints of The Psychedelic Furs, The Cure, and U2.

The irony of the song is the amount of time I spent trying to get all of the instrumentation and production just right. The perfectionist in me is hard to suppress. However, the last ringing guitar notes were actually a mistake in one of my takes, and I decided to leave it in to show that it is fine to be less than perfect.
