The First Post

So I have been enlisted to post the first (of many) official word gatherings on our brand new blog.
I can start by saying that I’m currently super-super excited about our album coming out in 2 months (or whatever time it is to you when this gets published).
I’ve been going back and forth on being excited and frustrated, and then excited again but we have not long to go now and we’ve so much planned that I hope will excite you too.
We finished recording in February, and what we have discovered is that it takes a long time to put out your first record when you want everything to be perfect.I’m happy with the recording still (thank God).Oh I’ve tried to poke hole after hole in it, but I came to the realisation that there’s not much point in doing that, and that the band I am in now, is a very different one to the one which recorded the album.The addition of Yvonne on bass has proved to be somewhat of a turning point in terms of musicality and the band dynamic Marc and myself had.Everything has changed in such a short space of time, and the album is effectively the last piece in our work as a duo.
Having said that, we will be playing it all as a three-piece and part of the reason Yvonne was asked to join, was that the parts I was writing for bass were becoming increasingly too complicated for me to play live when looping everything else.
This should result in the songs being given new life when you see them being preformed.We are a tight-knit three piece band now, and that will give our songs a completely different energy.Hopefully a positive one.

These ramblings will hopefully document how I think about the band far too much, and how I should probably just pick up my guitar and try and write again.

Thanks for reading,
