I made a decision to step back from guitars for this project and leave it to Declan and Jordan. I send off the bones of songs and they add the flesh, colour and human dynamics. It really is an amazing transformation. Declan creates soundscapes to match the Norwegian winter landscapes that he now finds himself in and Jordan punches out the warm vibes from a sub-tropical oasis on the south coast of NSW. We all started work here in the New England, NSW, but it no longer matters where we are, music travels beyond physical boundaries. I feel very lucky to work with these two fine gentle men.
Sometimes I cut up what Decs and Jordan send me and other times I just drop it in the mix as it is. For live mixing I’m hoping I can treat them respectfully different every time from here in. Early jams have proved positive.
