Part of the uniqueness of “True Loves” – Brooklyn’s Hooray for Earth debut album – lies in a certain kind of heavieness that’s intertwined with its pop buoyancy. The drums are massive and brooding (and were recorded on a rooftop) and the keyboards are thick and lush with extensive layering on every track. While the album does have extensive guitar work, most of it is reworked and chopped up to sound like keyboards. The album was also mixed by Chris Coady who is no stranger to cutting-edge sounds (Beach House, Delorean, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and TV On The Radio to name a few). We sent band leader Noel Heroux a few questions about the album’s recording process. – Read the Q&A here.
