“This​ ​album​ ​best​ ​reflects​ ​our​ ​recent​ ​life​ ​experiences,​ ​encapsulating​ ​all​ ​we've​ ​encountered​ ​over​ ​the past​ ​two​ ​and​ ​a​ ​half​ ​years.​ ​Our​ ​recording​ ​process​ ​for​ ​the​ ​album​ ​followed​ ​no​ ​structure;​ ​we​ ​recorded vocals​ ​in​ ​carparks,​ ​tour​ ​buses​ ​and​ ​our​ ​studios​ ​in​ ​Sydney.​ ​One​ ​vocal​ ​loop​ ​was​ ​recorded​ ​into​ ​an iPhone​ ​on​ ​stage​ ​in​ ​a​ ​theatre​ ​in​ ​America.​ ​Ultimately​ ​every​ ​idea​ ​and​ ​piece​ ​of​ ​music​ ​we​ ​had​ ​come









together​ ​in​ ​my​ ​bedroom​ ​studio,​ ​we​ ​then​ ​took​ ​it​ ​to​ ​our​ ​producer​ ​Ian​ ​Pritchett's​ ​garage​ ​studio​ ​and that's​ ​where​ ​the​ ​songs​ ​came​ ​to​ ​life.”
