In this Interview…

With You For Ever is coming out April 9, Stray Fossa’s debut full-length. They’re releasing the album independently, which they recorded in their attic studio in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Zach Blount talked about have a studio in the same space where they lived. “Because we could create all the time, [we put] limits on things and set deadlines can be helpful so we don’t get carried away with things.”

Will Evans “[‘How Come?’] was originally a demo that Nick has built in his room, and then he took it to the band. And like a lot of songs we work on will start as demos… kind of bedroom projects, and then we’ll hash them out live. A lot of the fine tuning of structure and arrangement comes from those sessions.”

Stray Fossa (Will Evans, Zach Blount, Nick Evans)

How Come? by Stray Fossa was released on January 19, 2021 (via Nice Guys). Listen to it and support the band on BandCamp:
