This summer we'll be releasing our third record, produced by the meticulously adventurous Tony Hoffer (Phoenix, M83, Beck), and recorded in Highland Park, LA.
Watch/listen to the "Never Thought This Would Happen" lyric trailer
We wrote the record in our hometown of Hamilton, with a workmanlike approach. We went in five days a week, had an hour for lunch, and rode our bike's home. Our workshop was a 150-year-old building: a former spice factory, turned gay nightclub, turned abandoned building. The room isn't acoustically primed, but that forced the band to keep the essentials, lock into the grooves, and let the natural reverb take the tunes into cinematic places.
"Never Thought This Would Happen" was inspired by this beautiful little summer festival in rural Ontario called Hillside. Under the sun, there's live music, workshops and summer dresses flowing in the wind. Beneath the moonlight, there's drinking, dancing, and campfire sing-a-longs. This song takes place after all of that, sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
The song is a slow-burner, but by the end of it you should be moving.
Hang tight for the whole record!
