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.”
