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.
