A group of people enter a strange space - walls covered in carpet, metal boxes everywhere, swathes of buttons and cords and leads and blinking lights and bewildering space-age machinery - and weeks later emerge, blinking, from the darkness, album in hand.
What exactly happens within the hallowed walls of the recording studio? Who knows; we can be but content to listen to the fruits of the secret labours of those who understand things like which end of a guitar to plug into an amplifier. Fortunately, Papa vs Pretty’s new album, White Deer Park unfolds some of the mysteries of this musical alchemy.
You can hear that magic at work on soaring single My Life Is Yours, which caps off an album that represents the cream skimmed from the top of years’ worth of experimentation.
“We wrote over 80 songs and the culling process was intense!” Thom recalls, only slightly wearily. “I started writing My Life Is Yours before I first went to L.A. to write and finished when I got back. Going to L.A. was a total life changing experience and it set the tone for what followed.”
