Hey there, Today we release our first single ‘Germland (of Julien Charbonneau)’ from our forthcoming record out later this year. We recorded the song at airlock studios with Paul Dempsey (Producer) and Yanto Browning (Engineer)
A little about this song: ‘Germland’ is the oldest song on the album and in many ways served as the catalyst for making the record. A couple years back now we were on a break traveling different parts overseas. Valdis had recorded a very raw demo whilst staying in a quiet town in Germany. He sent the demo to us all via the magic of the internet and as soon as we were all back in OZ we began working on it as a band. It became one of those songs over the years that for some reason we felt we had to rearrange it a million times until realising the first arrangement was probably the best. It happens.
Fun fact: the title of the song comes from a friend of ours Julien. We met Julien many years ago whilst he was over here visiting from Montreal. He is a total sweetheart,has an infectious smile and a ‘free and easy’ attitude that is just great to be around. He also did the artwork for our EP ‘Burn Bright’. When Valdis was in Germany, they would talk and Julien would always ask ‘how is Germland going? ’ and shazam you have a song title.
Anyway, we are very proud of how it all turned out.
I hope y’all like it.
Lots of love Jackson and MA.
