Most often nowadays an album are recorded all instruments separately, but we recorded the album live together in the studio. We wanted to have that ”in the moment feeling” on the album just as if we were to play a live concert. With our strong 70’s influences this choices seemed like the right way to do it. Also, I lose a lot of the feeling when I record separately from the band. I think it’s because of the endless possibilities to record 100’s of takes and polish till it sounds flawless.
But without the flaws I think you lose a lot of what makes music feel alive. // Jacob
• What are your songs on the new record about?
The lyrics from album were inspired by worldwide issues, for example “Guidance to agony” tells a story about violence against women, especially in near relationships. The song “White bones” is about the refugee crisis, where for example parents send their children across the ocean to risk their lives, so they might get a better life without war and hunger. We also have a song about the environmental crisis, “Belladonna ”, from the earth’s per- spective.
