I Heart Sharks at Studio East on Nalepastraße

Today will be our second day out here at Nalepastraße, where we are recording three of our newest songs. The work on our album is getting more serious, and we've aimed to have recorded every album track once ourselves. This has always given us deeper insight into improving our tracks for the CD - where the music will be recreated differently than we do it live!

I got the chance to meet berlin-based producer Moses Schneider (Beatsteaks / Tocotronic) the other day and talk about his approach to live recording. We're using his technique out here and getting some very interesting results! With drums and amps all in the same room there's some great microphone spill that moves our sound away from all that cleanly produced synthesizer pop towards a more grungy live-band sound. We're very much in love with it!
