Hi troops! hope you're all feeling 'topped up' after the Bank Holiday week-end and ready to grab the week by it's ankles! We did our usual writing stint on Saturday- been doing loads of house sitting recently- feel we've sort of become like a bunch of musical nomads travelling around with all our recording gear from place to place- we set up camp, work on a song and then move on to the next destination. Who knows, maybe being in all these different places helps to keep the creativity flowing. We've got no shortage of ideas at the moment, so it must be working!
I'm happy to report that we're writing a new track-it kind of 'morphs' it's way out of the end of PAPER SATELLITES using the same piano riff but with a completely different vocal line. It's quite chilled and will hopefully add balance to the more full-on tracks on the album. Almost simultaneously, we've been inspired with another track (title still to be decided!), which is a mellow little number too. At this rate we are in serious danger of having too many tracks to fit on the album, but give me this kind of danger any day!
This pre production stage may have been a long old haul but it's been SO worth it and it's taught us bag loads of stuff- just can't wait to hear it all properly recorded....bring it on!
Speak soon Mel xx.
