Summary: Three consecutive 8-hour days doing band sessions at Soundbaker Studios. Six 4-hour sessions recording and compiling vocals. Many mugs of peppermint tea, 1 packet of jelly snakes and a box of Cheds.
Thursday’s band session started off well – set up was quick and clean, and by the end of the day the drums and bass had good takes down for 6 songs. There were five of us in the studio – Robin and Bronton putting down bass and drums respeectively, and the rest of us playing along to give them a guide and some mojo. On the Friday, we finished off the drum and bass tracks, and moved to recording Tal’s keys and Harry’s guitar. Pleased with our productivity, the band ended the day with an energetic gig at The Boheme.

“Undertones” has been nominated for the WAM Song of the Year Awards in the urban category!! You can vote for it as your favourite song at Perth Now… also check out the nominated tracks by my fellow Soulaverse collective members, The Brow and NDORSE & Rezide! Funny, this song has had a long journey with me… I first penned the melody, lyrics and chords at the age of 15 in response to my experience of the high school flirting game. It developed and the arrangement matured over the years until I recorded it for my EP… and here it is in the finals of WA’s most prestigious song competition: the work of a 15-year-old schoolgirl! Cool Anyways, I’ll be attending an awards night in mid-October to see how my nominated track fares in the overall judging, so stay tuned…
