VersaEmerge checked in after arriving in a recording studio in Los Angeles, working with producers Shaun Lopez and Andrew Dawson on a follow-up to their 2010 debut ‘Fixed at Zero’. Sierra Kusterbeck and Blake Harnage write:
We’re currently located in Los Angeles, California in the heart of Hollywood. Sunset blvd, 34° N, 118°W, in a building at The Crossroads of The World and we have finally begun recording our second full-length album with our “Dream Team” – producers Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Crosses) and Andrew Dawson (Kayne West, Lil Wayne). We always feel at home and the most inspired in LA, so inevitably we were drawn back here to find the perfect place with the right vibes to create this record. So here we are in an old set of cottage style bungalows, with the 1930’s still lingering around in the air. It’s insanely perfect for us. This past year we have been hugely influenced by retro-futurism, vintage outer space, and oddball classic movie soundtracks. The studio we are currently using as a hang and private work space is actually Orson Welles’ old office (Blake really geeked out on that one). Good vibrations around us, we can’t wait to hear how it plays out through the music.
We’ll meet you in the future.
Blake and Sierra
