When Nightjacket’s Holland Belle told her bandmates that she was moving from LA to Berlin in 2016 to chase love, they took it in stride.
For a band whose music was largely inspired by the trials of relationships, it seemed almost appropriate that their lead singer would follow her love 6,000 miles away. “I met with (guitarist/co-founder) Jordan (Wiggins) and told him that I had to give Berlin a shot, but I didn’t want it to affect the band,” says Belle. “I was afraid he’d be done with it, but he was so supportive. I had even more faith in the project after that moment.”
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.”
