What we did last summer

by violalecompte

I have some happy news to share! But first, a little background info…

This past summer has been so amazing, mainly because I somehow managed to squeeze in a lot of studio time (whoop whoop!) First of all there were the recordings of my second album in Zagreb with Mark, which were as much fun as the first round of album recordings back in 2015.

A couple of weeks after the Zagreb studio sessions, Daniel, Mark and me drove on to Switzerland to hang out with the Swiss band Knuts Koffer. We spent a week with them in their farmhouse studio in the middle of the Swiss countryside, basically surrounded by cows and the sound of cow bells. (That in itself would make for a perfectly spent summer holiday). But besides petting the cows, learning how to shoot arrows and having BBQ at night, we spent our time there recording Knuts Koffer newest album, of which all the songs are in Croatian (none of the band members are Croatian or speak the language)

Fun fact: Daniel and I also got to play some parts in the recordings. He played violin and I sang backing vocals on some of the songs 🙂

And now it’s time for the album release concert, which will take place October 20th in Vintage Industrial Bar in Zagreb! It’s a shame we can’t make it (working full time in Sweden and expecting a baby and all) But if you are free, don’t miss it!
