Refreshing

Mmm holidays – delicious, and indeed refreshing. There’s nothing like waking up at 1 in the afternoon to remind you that for all the crime, corruption and disaster in the world, good still prevails. It’s also refreshing to be writing a blog post again, now that I think about it. And now that I think about me thinking about how refreshing writing is just then, part of the reason why we’re feeling so refreshed is probably because we’re writing new music. Did that sentence confuse you? Well, me too. But the absence of a squiggle means that Bill Gates followed along quite nicely. Thank you, Microsoft.

(If you thought “Refreshing” referred to refreshing this website in order to receive new blog posts and are feeling disappointed, I’d like to apologise. I’d also like to apologise for the immense strain your keyboard must have taken refreshing this page over and over for the time we were away.) (more…)

“Untitled” (Your Cure For The Monday Blues)

Gooooooood Monday everybody! Crawling out from the hole he once came from, once again, it’s time for you to hear a word or two from… Me.

Hope you all had a legendary weekend, and that for those of you that are on a decent holiday, that you’re enjoying the nuts out of that. Big news for today’s blog… (Drumrolls, confetti, fireworks and a collection of your female relatives dancing to a Beyonce number) THE SONGLIST. While the weekend was going down I managed to take an epic trip into Jason’s schedule to put down ideas and pre prod tracks for the final song. He then slapped some synth and drums on ‘dem tracks and it’s actually starting to take some good shape on tape (I’m practising this whole “rhyming” thing, I’ve heard it’s good for writing lyrics). Hopefully you’ll think it sounds as cool as I do. The song is currently under the name, “Untitled”. Creative, yes, but if lyrics take enough shape to throw any special words at it, I’ll schwing those words your way.

So here it is, in no particular order. (more…)


Antics

Greetings.

It’s been a while since we’ve been on stage for all you awesome crazy fans which has made us all quite sad. This is partly due to exams, and also partly due to the recording process we are about to enter.

Over the past few weeks we have had some serious band meetings (No Sikipedia jokes, nor straying off topic to talk about how Nick and Tay were ”kidnapped” by their friends the night before and forced to go on some crazy mission where they eventually leveled up in some wizardly fashion and are now holders of some insane title ending in 5000. [Moments where Rous reminds me how there are some advantages to having no friends]) and began preproduction on some songs that will be making up part of our EP album coming out sometime later this year. For all of you that don’t know what this crazy preproduction process is, well let me explain.

preproduction [ˌpriːprəˈdʌkʃən]

n
preliminary work on or trial production of a play, industrial prototype, etc.
