Bruises (Cover) || Hive Open Mic [WK-128]

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Here we are again, with another heartbreak song. We have chosen this week’s theme for Hive Open Mic to be "Desamor," meaning "Heartbreak."

Heartbreak songs hit differently, you could agree. Well, not for everyone, but one can say they are powerful ones as they usually come from a place of pain. Today, I bring to you "Bruises" by Lewis Capaldi.

I’m no Swifty (fan of Taylor Swift), but I kind of like deep songs like this, and Lewis does very well to deliver them. Not that my heart is shattered into a million pieces spread across the universe. But let’s not go there.


This song is quite simple, yet for some reason I found it really challenging. I have known it for a long time, but still I couldn't just get what I wanted.

I literally had to do a hundred and seventy takes to bring this to you. It sure would sound like an over-exaggerated figure, but I assure you, as an amateur musician like myself, it isn't.

At some point, my PC crashed, with all I had done, and then I had to restart and go through all the rigor again. I couldn't be any happier as I went through all the stress. I couldn't "not" put in my best into it.

If I had not had my brother with me, @starstrings01, I may not have finished this project (Bruises). He isn't always here, but whenever he is, he sure is like an angel sent at the right time.

The audio production was monitored by @starstrings01. And then @starstrings01 and another brother, who's new to Hive (watch out for him) @t-gold, made the video as you have it.

It sure wouldn't sound like a lot happened, but believe me that my soul went into this, as always. So, so ensure you listen with an open mind an enjoy it.

Aquí estamos de nuevo, con otra canción desgarradora. Hemos elegido el tema de esta semana para Hive Open Mic como "Desamor", que significa "Heartbreak".

Las canciones de Heartbreak golpean de manera diferente, podrías estar de acuerdo. Bueno, no para todos, pero se puede decir que son poderosos, ya que suelen provenir de un lugar de dolor. Hoy os traigo "Bruises" de Lewis Capaldi.

No soy Swifty (fanático de Taylor Swift), pero me gustan las canciones profundas como esta, y Lewis lo hace muy bien para entregarlas. No es que mi corazón esté destrozado en un millón de pedazos repartidos por todo el universo. Pero no vayamos allí.


Esta canción es bastante simple, pero por alguna razón me pareció muy difícil. Lo sé desde hace mucho tiempo, pero aún así no pude conseguir lo que quería.

Literalmente tuve que hacer ciento setenta tomas para traerte esto. Seguro que sonaría como una figura exagerada, pero te aseguro que, como músico aficionado como yo, no lo es.

En algún momento, mi PC se estrelló, con todo lo que había hecho, y luego tuve que reiniciar y pasar por todo el rigor de nuevo. No podría estar más feliz, ya que pasé por todo el estrés. No pude "no" poner lo mejor de mí.

Si no hubiera tenido a mi hermano conmigo, @starstrings01, es posible que no hubiera terminado este proyecto (Bruises). No siempre está aquí, pero cada vez que lo está, seguro que es como un ángel enviado en el momento adecuado.

La producción de audio fue monitoreada por @starstrings01. Y luego @starstrings01 y otro hermano, que es nuevo en Hive (cuidado con él) @t-gold, hicieron el video tal como lo tienes.

Seguro que no parecería que hubiera pasado mucho, pero créeme que mi alma se metió en esto, como siempre. Así que asegúrate de escuchar con la mente abierta y disfrutarlo.

The setting alone, I was looking at the arrangement and it was perfect... I knew I had to watch if it was a video from you. You don't disappoint, plus I was looking at the technical part of the video firstly, it thrilled me, well-done

I know how important it is to have good visual representation of your content, regardless of the niche. This is why I try to ensure that I nail that, as well as I try to nail the sound itself.

The fact that my works are catching your eyes and that they are appealing to you makes me feel my efforts are well appreciated.

I am defilnitely not going drop the bar, rather I'll keep trying to raise my standard. Quality is very crucial.

Thank you for the tip!

If I fall, will he marry me? 😒 I don't want to waste too much of time falling o

Of course, especially for you but guess what! I don't have any, the video is good.

But don't be relaxed, the next has to be better so I don't double my critics next time 😅 warning!

Hello Joe, nice to meet you, I don't think we had met before, if I'm wrong let me know, the truth is... what a video production 👍, I congratulate you and congratulate those involved 👏👏👏!!!

Certainly the song is difficult, every soft melody exposes us vocally, since it has moments of calm and then explosive moments and knowing how to modulate those moments with mastery is not easy, but personally your voice sounded great, good job!!

I liked the song and hey, your studio is very cool, elegant and has a very noticeable aura of peace. It doesn't matter how many takes you did, it usually happens, but here you are and you did very well my friend 🔥🔥🔥!!!

Thank you very much for joining us in this edition of the Hive Open Mic, we look forward to seeing you again next week ¡You Rock! 🙌😀💛

Hello @fernanblog. I really do not think we have met before. But I am super glad you came by.

The things that makes the song somewhat difficult are the moments of calmness and then the moments of explosions. Trying to switch between those two contradicting energy is what was quite challenging. But, here we have it; I managed to do it, somehow...😁

I actually do not have a studio, nor do I have studio equipments. I just try to make the best out of the things I have around, so I can make my song visually presentable as well as the audio.

I really appreciate the kind words you have said here. They sure will go on to encourage me to be consistent. Thank you!

That is actually so true! I am holding on to that.

You have such a really great way of encouraging and supporting people. You are the one who rocks!

And then you play the guitar, and make music? I play the guitar too. I just did not use it for this cover. I did in the last Open Mic entry ... You may like it.

That was indeed a wonderful performance from you guys. I will never know you went through all that just to make something good for the theme. I can relate with the stress of recording even when you are sure of knowing the song, there would still be error over error until you get something right. 😝
I love that 👏👏👏👏

I popped in through Dreemport 🤗

With the fact that you can relate to the whole stress means that you actually know all we go through to acheive videos like this.

It takes courage to try, and takes determination to see it through. In all, it takes strength sustain oneself.

There will always be errors... in fact, there were somethings I was not comfortable with in the audio and video, but aiming for absolute perfection will not yield much.

Thank you for always stopping by...

You have a lovely voice Joe! And you put so much into your renditions. They are lovely. You belt them out well... are you in a studio there or was your audio recorded elsewhere? The acoustics are pretty good. !PIZZA !ALIVE

I try to put in my best as often as I can. I am glad you see that and appreiate them.

What you see there is not a studio but just my bedroom. And I recorded the audio right there. I only just gathered a few things I had lying around to make something visually appealing. I know how importance the sight of it all is....

Thank you always for your support, @samsmith1971

i'm so sad i got to listen to this only today.
it took a while before i got back here online.
been busy adjusting because it truly looks like our vacation made a big impact in our lives.
my husband and i now prefer to just stay home back in the Philippines.
i could sing more there for #hiveopenmic more time. hehehe.
the pain of missing our loved ones is truly like the pain you feel when your heart's bruised.
so i can relate to your singing.
keep singing and tagging me.

love lots,
@erelasblog
