It sounds like Babbit had a great time making "Painting Greys"—that crazy rolling synth in the chorus was a great find, and his vocal effects fall just on the right side of Imogen Heap.
What's more, the producer wasn't even planning on singing, telling us he "was planning on writing the lyrics for someone else. It was really just random that I ended up recording on the track at all, considering I don’t even own a microphone. My housemate, who’s more of a singer, ended up being out of town for a few days so I got a chance to mess around with his." Here's hoping the housemate goes out more often.
