“Once stuff gets going, there’s a lot of superfluous stuff going on that’s part of what you’re doing, but isn’t making music, so it’s hard to concentrate,” she explained. “We know that, when we’re in the studio basically left alone, we can make music. The only way to do that again was to actually get away.
“We noticed that there’s kind of two extremes on the album. Half the songs are from endless time in bedroom sessions, and half the songs are when we spent this one week out in the woods. Sound-wise, we don’t have too many surprises, but we do experiment with lots of different writing styles. Some songs are almost like a ballad, or a waltz, but then there’s some on there that are almost four to the floor, but not quite.
“I think that it’s important to have an album that doesn’t just sit in one area. We could quite easily have made an album of slow, downtime, ballad bedroom jams, but we wanted to provide a little bit more of a well rounded experience.”
