7Sub Pop Records - The twisted double edge of glamour, with its perils and perfect moments, was an endless source. There are songs with layers and production that we could never recreate live, and that is exciting to us. Thematically, this record often deals with the beauty that arises in dealing with darkness; the empathy and love that grows from collective trauma; the place one reaches when they accept rather than deny.
We wanted to rethink old methods and shed some self-imposed limitations. We have now written and released a total of 77 songs together. In the past, we often limited our writing to parts that we could perform live. On 7, we decided to follow whatever came naturally. Looking back, there is quite a bit of chaos in these songs, and a pervasive dark field that we had little control over.
7 - For 7, we built a "home" studio, and began all of the songs there. Basically, instead of instrumentation, we let our creative moods, dictate the album’s feel. In a more general sense, we are interested by the human mind's and nature’s tendency to create forces equal and opposite to those present. Whenever we had a group of 3-4 songs that we were excited about, in the process shortening the amount of time between the original idea and the finished song of the album’s 11 songs, 8 were finished at Carriage House in Stamford, we would go to a “proper” recording studio and finish recording them there, CT and 2 at Palmetto Studio in Los Angeles.
At its release, we will have been a band for over 13 years.
