After the success of the ’Bros’ single, Wolf Alice asked if I would produce their debut, 4 track EP.
A week was booked in the studio and we set about experimenting with sounds.
Being my first full band production (aside from Bros) it was great to be given the opportunity to take a more decisive role in the project’s direction but as I was also engineering the session, it was a particularly long and hard week for me; which I have to admit, I absolutely revelled in.
Despite the usual drawn out conversations of “this section should be 4 bars…no 8 bars…no 4 bars….” and “the guitars need to sound more…..wavy” we worked our way towards a very exciting conclusion by the end of the week, where we were all very excited by what we had achieved.
Again, following the same formula as before, Dan Grech-Marguerat was our mix engineer of choice and again, he did a sterling job.
After it’s release the EP was received well by both critics and fans, and combined with a nationwide tour supporting acts such as SWIMDEEP and The 1975, led to them securing a recording contract with Dirty Hit Records
Wolf Alice are due to begin a headline tour in MAY 2014 supported by Superfood.
