Tony, I hear music going back much further, I believe there's some channelling of "Pink Floyd" specifically from the "Echoes" Album....That album had some serious rotation in my life!!!Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division, these are bands that are definitely on our constant rotation list. Our band has a various list of influences, but I'd say that the bands that we drew from the most for this recording are (to name a few):
My Bloody Valentine
The Jesus and Mary Chain
Ringo Death Starr
A Place to Bury Strangers
No shows planned at the moment, as we only have 5 songs. hahaha
3/4 of us are dads, and we all hold full time careers etc. Our goal with this project was to more or less see our jams through. All 5 of these songs on our EP were written at jams, and we wanted to go through with the development of them. We've only been together about 5 months, and wanted to create an honest EP like our influences would have before us. That means, many takes, no autotune, no snapping drums to grids etc. If we made a mistake, we just did another take. The previous band I was in was so over processed and over produced, that I felt we did not sound how "we" sounded in real life. I wanted to ensure that we recorded the songs in a way that felt authentic to us. It was a super liberating project to be a part of, and ultimately, we're all pretty happy with how it came out.
Thanks Norm. I was raised on Pink Floyd; it's in my blood, so you're definitely spot on. To really tie into the Pink Floyd angle, our go-to delay on this EP was my Binson Echorec patch on the Source Audio Nemesis. That's my all-time favourite delay sound, and I can pretty much thank Mr. Gilmour for that.Tony, I hear music going back much further, I believe there's some channelling of "Pink Floyd" specifically from the "Echoes" Album....That album had some serious rotation in my life!!!
It has that feel with an emphasis on open space, especially the guitar!
Great job guys!
That voice coming out of a guy named Tony? Gotta see it to believe it.Ha, thanks! That's actually my voice.
HAHAHAHAHA, Thank you - that's very flattering! Our goal was to definitely give a nod to our influences, but have a more modern sound to the overall performance.That voice coming out of a guy named Tony? Gotta see it to believe it.
Anyway, it's right up my alley - there's something nostalgic about it, but definitely still current - current like Tame Impala meets The National with a hint of Broken Social Scene.
