Recording New Tracks!
It's been a while, so we wanted to touch base with you and fill you in on what we've been upto. We've recently been in the studio a lot, recording some new tracks. We've kept the vocals quite dreamy, but we are also writing some Synthwave and Synth Pop tracks which we think you will like. We've kept some of the gear we are using consistent. Such as Vickys harmonica microphone, as we feel this brings out the best frequencies in her voice, and keeps that retro feel. We have experimented with more vintage microphones, but this one just fits every time we need that dreamy sound. We've kept our signature sound with those vocal hooks, and we've been processing them through some of our new plugins, such as the Arcade plugin. This is awesome to get the sound of vocals processed through pedal boards and pitch shifters etc.
As busy creatives we have had to move our deadline forward, and therefore you might not see us perform live now until next year. Yes i know, we are sorry too. We've had a few creative blocks and also not nailed the sound we want every time we've hit the studio. We will be sharing our process with you however through Facebook live and through Instagram, so do follow us and our ups and downs!
Vickys now embarking on a 3 year course in Copenhagen also, studying voice technique. She fell in love with the technique and decided its time to find new ways to share information about the voice with the students she teaches in Cambridge. So you may even hear some new sounds coming across in her voice through the recordings. At the moment she's studying Janis Joplins - distortion technique. Well, you might not hear it in the dream pop, but she may share some of her discoveries through instagram.
So our next steps are to finish off 3 new tracks in the next couple of weeks, and then we will share with you a more solid plan for the next year.
Oh and we are chuffed to now have 10,000 fans on facebook. Thanks so much for joining us. We love to share with you all things 80's and 90's that influences our music, to share playlists and new music. We are so grateful for all your support and for your musical recommendations.
