Behind the Scenes: Recording IDK HOW TO HAVE FUN ON AN ISLAND WHERE I'M ALWAYS WASTING TIME

We couldn't be happier to finally be releasing our very first EP! 

The journey these four songs have taken is quite a long one.  Last September, Kris had just joined the band and the three of us jumped straight into Converse's Rubber Tracks studio. We had only just started playing together and were working on somewhat old songs, before having any true direction yet as a new group (or even solidified a new band name!), but when an opportunity like that comes along, you just jump on it.

 Glenn Drumming Away! 

Glenn Drumming Away! 

We had the privilege of working at Rubber Track's with Matt Shane was our lovely engineer that day and he was fantastic! 

With the basic tracking mostly done, I got in touch with Chris Gilroy to help us finish up the vocals, second guitars and mix!  He and I spent many many nights grinding out the vocals and going over the mixes at Douglas Street Records.  Once that was complete, Glenn's friend Justin Shturtz did us the honor of mastering all the tracks  at Sterling Sound and boom we had an EP.  In fact we had the EP done before we'd even settled on a new band name! 

During the process of finishing this, Glenn had a punctured ear drum, Kris got hit by a car and broke her foot, I moved apartments, Glenn switched jobs, Kris started school and finally, FINALLY, the 4 songs we managed to record are making their way to you. 

Now because you are all such beautiful people and we appreciate everyone following along this path, you can preview the whole EP HERE before it's official release :)

Cheers,

Madge
