Our Album “IT WAS TOUGH” is the culmination of six years’ dedicated work, the most influential period having been two years working in the basement of the house belonging to our friend Howard Devoto (the legendary MAGAZINE and BUZZCOCKS frontman). Out of over 200 numbers we finally chose 10. (11 with the bonus track)
How do we describe our sound? Our music is an eclectic modern crossover of intelligent electronic rock, punchy beats, catchy harmonies, 80’s, pop and alternative music. If that is confusing, think along these lines: Depeche Mode, Awolnation, OMD, Duran Duran, INXS, The Cure, Hurts, New Order, Placebo, U2, Peter Murphy, Phil Collins, Linking Park, White Lies, Billy Idol. We share something in common with all of them.
The album was mixed by Adrian Breakspear at Bank Studios, London (for MILOCO – The Chemical Brothers, Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Unkle, Spiritualized) and mastered by Simon Davey (ASH, Chrystal Castles, Chromeo, Chemical Brothers, Hot Chip, MOBY) at The Exchange, London. We chose these guys and studios to suit the sound of our recording. We spent weeks finding the right people!
