With purposely limited resources and such a fast-paced and intricate sound, I’m curious as to whether they take performing live into account when recording. For Laurie, it seems the two are somewhat separate entities.
“We used to consider both when recording, but we made the decision to make the record as good as possible, and separately make the live show as good as it can be too.
“Sometimes we add layers and they might not be there live, but the intensity and energy is there so it doesn’t really matter.
“We’re always just going to have just two elements going on live, we don’t want to lose that realness by having backing tracks.”
Like many bands who come bursting out of the woodwork and into the ears of the musical savvy, people soak up their album so much that it leaves them wanting more. Slaves fans will be happy to know that the group have already written seven new songs.
“We’re up for going straight back at it. I don’t think we like to dwell on the past too much.”
Their sophomore album may be closer than you think.
