The band quickly set out to record seven songs with engineer Adam Lasus (Yo La Tango, Lilys, Army Navy) for the follow-up to Nightjacket’s debut EP, Eternal Phase. “We recorded the basics with Adam with the intention of finishing the overdubs in our home studios, but we got so deep into exploring new guitar and synth sounds that two months turned into a year and seven songs turned into twelve,” says Louie Schultz (guitar/keys).
After commuting between Berlin and LA to record and perform, Belle returned to LA full time to finish the album. Produced with Lasus, the album introduces new analog synth textures and smoky vocals reminiscent of Nico. “It was a whirlwind year,” says Belle, “but I wouldn’t take back any of the struggles. If there’s anything you should fight for, it’s love - and in the end it all helped inspire a better record.”
