‘You Cry’ is a record that takes the listener on a journey through many different genres and topics and that refuses to encapsulate the mood of living under lockdown alienation and claustrophobia. It has not been recorded remotely by gluing parts together bit by bit, but with musicians playing together live, capturing a few minutes of something happening.
The group nailed the songs quite in single takes and recorded full-length, coherent takes as a unit, having the time to develop the character of their part in the studio. No cut ‘n’ paste, no shortcuts to perfection. The old-school recording technique focuses on expressions and emotions, it gives a human feel that no computer will ever match. Because the music matters more than the details.
