“It seemed like a good time to do it” recalls Curt. “Everyones getting back into these shoegaze bands and you really can’t avoid hearing all these great tunes pumping on the bar speakers nowadays”. “Yeah and we really wanna keep a classic element to it…keep it true to it’s original form” interjects Arshak. EP 1, the debut 4 song release by RHWR was recorded in an extreme DIY fashion. Guitars were plugged straight into cassette 4-track recorders, drums captured using very minimal microphone set-ups and fingered keyboard drum pad overdubs to ‘beef it up’. It this sense it retains a very raw and sonically distorted projection yet spacious with smooth edges created by the array of vintage analog effects.
Red Hearts White Ribbons EP 1 is available on digital formats. Vinyl and cassette to be released in 2018 through Respectful Lust Records.
