WTF Wednesday: Slam Donahue Teaches Us How To Write A Song

Posted August 1

Welcome to another edition of WTF Wednesday, where bands tell us what the f**k they’re looking at online. This week, Slam Donahue took us inside their top-secret songwriting process, a complicated, winding journey into the poetic abyss.

“We Googled ‘How to write a pop song,’” says Thomas Sommerville. “When you first Google ‘How to write a pop song’ there’s three examples that come up. There’s one that’s 22 steps, there’s one that 19 steps. We chose the one that’s five steps.” ‘

Naturally, the guys are kidding. We hope.
