First day of recording

We have finished tracking the 2 songs and have two great backgrounds. Now singing and overdubs... or maybe tomorrow.

Early morning

Wakeup call at 5.30 tomorrow morning. Puh! That's not funny.
I think we will go straight to the studio when we arrive tomorrow and start rehearsing the songs with the rest of the band. We need some drums and maybe some more guitars and piano. It will show tomorrow. You never know what you end up playing when you enter the studio. At least anything could happen when we worked in Tambourine. Hopefully it's the same here.

London next

We're preparing for our trip to London next week. It's the third time we return to this studio and this time it's not to write songs, but to record two of the songs we have written.
We have decided to expand our cooperation, since the songwriting part worked so well and we have the feeling that recording too can be interesting.

A new studio, new producers and a whole new way of working probably. Will we play and sing everything at the same time, or will we track the backgrounds first and do overdubs later?
Very thrilling.
We have no idea how the sound of this studio will fit with our own sound and if the result will be good. It's a trial and hopefully we will find a great recording model and create something great.

The worst part of the process is always the singing because it's so exposing and you have to feel comfortable and inspired to find the right feeling. That might take a while, and we only have a few days.
