Oranje four piece alternative Grunge/Indie band from Ipswich are set to release their debut EP Bitter Sweet on Friday 23 February.
Throughout summer, they were given the chance to record a 5 track EP at Punch Studios and that was mixed and produced in London.
We had a chat with band to discover how the process of putting the EP together was like and the difficulties they faced to achieve their goals.
TiN: How did you find the process of recording your EP?
Elle (Bass): The actual recording process was so fun, it was summer so we were gigging loads and still writing at the same time. Luckily we had such a good engineer Craig Smith. He was so chilled and easy to work with.
TiN: Were there any challenges you faced whilst recording your EP?
Elle: Lack of communication and difference of opinions came into it. And later on the distance situation caused a rift but other than that, the process was smooth going.
TiN: What song did you most enjoy recording and why?
TiN: Which song was the most challenging?
TiN: What were your inspirations for the EP?
Elle: Trying to capture what we do live, the same energy and feel. And I think this is something we will try every time we do a recording. That live sound is what we try and deliver.
