New album in the works

Work has commenced on our second, still untitled studio album. We've finished composing six new songs, with another six on the way. We're eyeing November for studio recordings. Keen to top our debut, we'll be firing on all cylinders in every department. Despite implementing more instrumental parts played by real soloists (not just cello, but also flutes and saxophones this time), we'll remain an electro pop band. More external gear is being used in production, mainly old synthesizers and drum machines from the 80s and early 90s. The songwriting approach is leaning more towards a more modern, house-inspired style, groovier, funkier and with more swing, but there'll also be some aethereal ballads. Check back here for news soon.

@an.on.: Neither nor. Edgier than the first album but less guitars than in the remixes. @Len: You will get more bass. ;)
