The band built a transparent recording studio in the middle of the shopping mall "AKROPOLE Alfa'' in Riga to make their EP album from scratch in public. From February 18th till 21st together with Kaspars Ansons, they challenged themselves, wrote music and allowed livestream viewers to see behind the scenes of the process. visited the band in their "Sub Būris" on the 4th day. Take a look, how it went:

One of the main goals of this project was to introduce the passers-by to the music production process, as well as involve the audience in various different music making activities and allow them to participate in recording. The band also collaborated with local Latvian celebrities such as rapper Ozols, pianist Andrejs Osokins and percussionist Nils Īle, which gave diverse sound to the songs and set up guys for a challenge to try out something different.

As one would expect, the lates single “Ievēlies” will also be included in the upcoming EP. Together with one of the most skilled music producers in Latvia - Kaspars Ansons - the band is surely in good hands and promises to keep the audience fully entertained throughout the four day marathon of album making.
