Stories of Strangers
Stories of Strangers is the culmination of more than 3 years of composition and comradery. We began recording in the winter of 2018, thinking to finish by summer, but instead production rolled on until autumn – 2 years later.
Right from the outset we knew we wanted to record the album ourselves and to do it entirely in analogue. Recording to tape has a warmth and quality that’s difficult to emulate digitally but perfect for our sound and songwriting. Sal used to run such a studio back in Los Angeles and this provided the perfect opportunity for him to acquire, repair, and restore the gear to build another: Year of the Rabbit Studios.
