It took the band members almost eight months of exchanging song-material via e-mail to finish the album - a
process Dan The Automator was also involved in right from the early beginnings. His influence becomes most
apparent in the songs “The Tent,” “Sun Goes Down” and “Before it Began” where he also took an active part in the
songwriting. Singer Gavin Hayes sums up the general sound of the new album as “Dark Pop."
“There is a certain darkness to it,” Gavin says. “A lot of our music is ultimately positive but can be conceived as sad
as well. It has these two sides that oppose each other, but manage to reconcile in the music.”
