Mood lighting 1.0. Our studio is in an old Berlin office building. The fluorescent lights were killing the creative vibe so we fired up our merch lights. Sexy! Makes such a huge difference for writing. Need some lava lamps next.
Had the first rehearsal with our new bass dude last night. Excited about the chemistry in this new lineup & where our sound is headed for the new album!
But right now we're getting Stefan up to speed on the songs from KOTST & Living Receiver. It takes time to re-learn the band's body language with a new member. Once that's second nature a band goes from just being "tight" to becoming a single creature that moves, breathes & feels together. That's when the real magic happens.
Doing a festival in Germany next week & we've gotta start busking ASAP to cover this month's rent. Feels a bit like cramming for exams atm!

This is what happens when you let bands crash in your rehearsal studio... Our mates from Leverkusen had a gig in Berlin & needed somewhere to stay. Wicked few days of jams, chills & beer.
There were 5 people sleeping in one room & there's no shower in the building. So things did get pretty funky in there. But hey, a jam ain't a jam without a some sweat in the air.
