At some point in your life you have to stop imagining yourself being Willie Nelson looking super uncomfortable in front of that microphone, face your fears and actually start recording something. For A Girl in a Rat Suit, this is now.
For the last few months I have created new demo songs and driving Mario (who is producing) crazy with my lack of click tracks, quantizing skills and not knowing a D from a C. Somehow two songs emerged from this messy chaos that we agreed upon doing. At this point, this is what I know:
– I’ll be leaving for New York February 14th – recordings starts February 16th
– I’ll be bringing my laptop and my so-called voice. Mario is in charge of musicians of all kinds, studios, recordings, mixing and guiding me to the best local chocolate shops (the last part, I haven’t presented to him yet)
– I will record two songs: ‘United we stand apart’ and ‘Hotel Terminus’.
– I will call this project ‘We are not amused’. Thank you über cool 90-year old Helen from England, who I met this summer in Norway, for the title.
