Recording Day 2 (BYs debut E.P.)

Another full 8 hour studio day; Individual tracking including Hayley putting down a djembe track and re-taking a symbol track, on a non-full-kit song due to the tone of the previous symbol she used clashing (is that a pun?) with the sound of the song it was used on. I was also thinking about what to use for the treatment on a “dreamy” middle 8 section when Dan suggested what I was already thinking about;  i.e. utilizing the studio 12 string. Simon recorded his bass through a mixture of a miked-up amp and his DI’ed sound, I did some lead guitar and Emma worked on some keyboard sounds. Radley, who finished early last time due to feeling ill (something he ate we suspect) did a full shift this time and helped to keep everyone feeling cozy and amused! We’re due back again for more keyboards, vocals and backing vocals. Can’t wait!

There's always a lot of waiting around in the studio (unless you're Dan!)
