WHAT THE PRESS RELEASE SAYS:
They are mainly songs that have been born out of the ups and downs of spending a lot of life on the road. Sometimes everything just makes sense and you can’t understand how things could be anything but beautiful, yet at other times the bottom falls out, desperation takes hold and all seems lost.
Tracks 1-9 were recorded at Uber Studios in Hull with Rob Burgess. Between Rob, Holly and Will they covered basically all instrumentations. The exact breakdown of some of the more secondary instruments can’t quite be remembered. We consider this a good thing! All songs were primarily mixed at Uber with Rob, Holly and Will before they were sent over to Fairview to be remixed and mastered.
Track 10 was recorded at Fairview Studios in Hull with John Spence and had Holly and Will on vocals and guitar and Dave and Tom on drums and bass respectively.
John Spence at Fairview studios mixed and mastered all tracks.
