One of Us - Work Brief

The goal of this song is to be a short, catchy, verse-chorus-verse song that fills the audio concept of Trent Reznor fronting for Photek.  It should use pop-song writing formula to filter the ideas of alienation from mainstream society through heavy bass music.  One of Us seeks to capture the feelings of increasing disassociation from society as the singer is inundated with the everyday barrage of advertising images telling him all the things he is not.  Product packaging, photoshopped models on glossy magazine covers, television advertisements for luxury cars: each on of these weapons of the modern consumption economy scream out at the singer, making it clear “you are not one of us.”

X Statement:

“(NIN) meets Avalanche (Photek) style dubstep”
