“It’s both an evolution and continuation of our sound. The first EP was recorded after playing together for only about a month, and was a bit of an experiment. Now we’ve become a lot more comfortable in our respective roles in this project.Our first EP was a sort of randomly thrown together batch of songs, many left over from a previous project. “Pusk” is a lot more cohesive, both in music and lyrics. This time we wrote each song specifically to play with this group of people. With the process being a lot more collaborative, you can hear how our individual styles come together. Both releases were recorded live in large spaces, but on “Pusk” we were able to experiment with different kinds of auxiliary sounds, and add more details through minor overdubbing. We recorded it in an indoor vert-ramp, and in the basement of a gutted stripclub. It is now up on our Bandcamp. We also have CDs and tapes which we’ll be selling on our tour.”
