Darryl Kissick is a songwriter from Regina, Saskatchewan, releasing his third full-length album. Rather than write about personal experiences, he opted to challenge himself and make each song in Goodbye Patterns about something supernatural or paranormal like werewolves, aliens, spirits, time loops and alternate dimensions.
“Not Myself” was one of the last songs written for the 11-track album, built around the piano chords. This one is loosely about turning into a werewolf at night. Not meant to be taken too seriously, it’s inspired by the desire to escape the mundanity of day-to-day life and let the id take over.
Recorded with the help of Avery Kissick (drums and percussion) and Andrea Hedlund (vocals and violin), it was mixed by Jonathan Anderson and mastered by Philip Shaw Bova. Along with releasing music under his own name, he plays in the group Foxwarren.
