Spending two days at the world renowned Metropolis studios where around 50% of music in the charts sees treatment from, Lost In Venice recorded ‘Games’ their first single (release date TBC) as the first milestone in their record deal for two singles and an album.
“A fantastic band, really tight, great musicianship, can’t wait to hear the recordings they are doing in our studios.”
Ian Brenchley, CEO Metropolis Studios
The sessions ran very smoothly over the weekend, with the band recording three songs and a cover version of an old classic.
James Exley, Drummer in Lost In Venice and a student at ACM said during the session;
“The sessions going really really well, there’s a lot of energy in the room, the guys we’re working with are absolutely amazing as well, so we’ve got Ace from Skunk Anansie producing, who we met at ACM, Liam Nolan who engineered for Adele so it’s a massive pleasure to have him on board as well, he’s the sweetest guy, and it sounds great – I can’t wait for people to listen to it.”
Producer of the single, Ace from Skunk Anansie and Head of Creative Industry Development said;
“Lost In Venice are a great new force on the cutting edge of live music. These guys are the real deal and are well placed for success”
Ace was joined by Liam Nolan (engineer for Adele’s 25, Clean Bandit, Roger Daltry, Cheryl Cole etc) who said;
“They’re really good, great players, great musicians and really tight! It’s been fairly easy process recording them and the tunes of course are really great. Ian asked me if I’d like to work with the band and there was a showcase here in Studio A where the band were playing that I went to. They were a very energetic band, and from that I just wanted to work with them. I was very honored to be asked to record them and it’s been a great thing to get involved with.”
Hoping to capture the energy of their live performances on the single, Lost In Venice are looking forward to the release, gigging and getting on the festival circuit throughout the rest of 2016.
