REVOLVER What’s “Under and Over It” about?
IVAN MOODY This one is about the rumors and gossip that go on everywhere—especially online. It’s comical to see how much crazy, ill-informed shit people will post as news and when they’re trolling around message boards. In today’s day and age, speculation and bad info can just fly around the internet and catch fire—even when it’s completely false and unfounded. Funny shit.
Which part of it did you guys come up with first?
The music happened first. The guys wrote this killer riff and the music for the chorus that was undeniable, and it just spoke to me. Once the music was written, the lyrical concept just flew out of my head from seeing all these crazy rumors and it all just fit.
Was this an easy song to write?
I’m going to contradict myself here, so get ready. I’ve always felt like songs should never be easy—it’s a gift to be in the position we’re in, and you really have to work hard, dig deep, and put every drop of blood into a track that you can, so that it’s brutally honest and true. However, this track was a rare moment where the lyrics just flowed out of me. It all came together so perfectly. Once I had the concept, the track took on a life of its own and really came together.
What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
I guess we’ll find out soon enough!
