On December 8th, 1980, the musical world was forever changed. John Lennon’s death defined a generation; his life defined multiple. A couple years ago we made a tribute to the beautiful musical genius that he was… Hope you enjoy, and Happy Xmas.
Ladies and gentleman, we present to you Volume 1 of the newly crafted “Arcade Sessions”.
In this episode we chose to cover “Breathe” by Pink Floyd. This piece was chosen because first off, the song is a timeless masterpiece. More importantly, it (and the entire Dark Side album) has served as a massive influence on the art we create now, some 4 decades later.
Also – how about that home grown arcade?!
Breathe, breathe in the air.
Don’t be afraid to care.
Leave but don’t leave me.
Look around and choose your own ground.
Long you live and high you fly
And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be.
Run, rabbit run.
Dig that hole, forget the sun,
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down it’s time to dig another one.
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave.
Here is the second view into our time recording LP3 at the Panoramic Studio in Stinson Beach, CA. We spent a week at this beautiful oceanfront mansion perfecting the concept for our upcoming third full length album (spring 2016). This particular clip features the song “June”, which will be the 6th track on the new album.
Here is the first view inside our sessions at Panoramic Studio in Stinson Beach, CA. We decided, late night, after an all day session, to spend some time under the full moon in the ocean fog outside the studio. This is a clip of an intimate (and unrehearsed) version of the song “April” from LP3 (spring 2016).
If only the camera could pick up the heavy fog covering us, and the sound of the waves crashing behind us.
What a fucking unbelievable experience…
We had the pleasure of opening up for Royal Blood at Ace of Spades last weekend, and the entire experience was beyond amazing. During the set we were able to debut some brand new material, including the song “March” which is linked below (you gotta love the GoPro stuck to the ceiling capturing the performance).
We expect to hit the studio in June/July to track LP3, and I could not be more excited about the material we’ve created. This will be the most personal, and emotional record we’ve recorded to date (trust me!).
