Thought I’d post a bit of a update. Things are slow in the MA camp; with us now having a lot of ‘grown up’ pursuits to pursue. These two take up quite a bit of my time:
Arte (big one) & Bebe (little one)
The one thing that is receiving my attention currently is the war EP, with hopefully some big news coming soon.
The album, ‘Marry Another presents… The Enlightenment’ is still being mixed, but I’m still very much committed to releasing this.
Anyway, for now, tight lines…
Following on from Adrians post. I wanted to fill you in on the recording process for this song. We wanted a specific sound for it. I hope that we got it.
The feel of the song we were going for was that of a campfire sing-a-long. We decided to record Adrian live with just 2 mics in the room aimed at him but not closely. We wanted to capture the rooms natural acoustic properties and not make it sound too polished. Basically, vocal and Continue reading
I haven’t written anything for a while, far too long a while in my opinion. So with that thought churning within me: here is a song. It’s interesting I think. And here is how I came about it:
I was in receipt of a letter, not just any old letter; I get them from time to time. This was a letter from a Japanese POW Camp. And literally, it made me think.
So as with all the stuff I’ve written about war, this became something I wanted documenting. With this impetus I turned my inspiration into a song; this isn’t words to music as such. My ideas married with theirs.
Anyway, I had an idea, because my grandfather was a participant. Hopefully you’ll enjoy it.
It’s true. We haven’t gone into hibernation or hiatus or whatever it is that bands do before they get back together. We have been working hard on new material. Finishing off a self produced War Poetry EP and coming to terms with being a 4 piece for the moment. [4 and a half. Ewan is just so far away and so busy that he can only make certain gigs.]
So I decided to whet your musical appetites with one of the songs from the War EP. The EP is called ‘Good Night, Good Luck, Keep Watch’ and it’s been a labour of love to say the least! The song I decided to load up is one of my favourites from the EP and it’s titled ‘The Gal’ It’s not quite finished yet so it has been loaded up in the ‘Demo Songs’ section. It just needs a tiny bit more mixing and a female vocalist to replace the male guide track. However, I think it’s good enough to be online to get you all curious as to what else we have been up to. I also personally really enjoy hearing demo songs from bands. It’s nice to see how the songs take shape and inevitably change. With that in mind, I also loaded up two more songs that we have Demo’d for our debut Album.
Head over to the ‘Demo Songs’ page and have a listen now. I hope you enjoy our little ditties.
