Without the pressure of having to deliver an album within a certain period of time, coupled with the free-spirited nature of the band, Summer Moon has given Fraiture the freedom to experiment and expand his own musical horizons. Once the demos became fully formed songs, Summer Moon's wanderlust took them from their New York roots to Austin and back again.
"We did most of the basic tracking at Vacation Island Studios with Matt Boynton, who did MGMT. The studio was tucked away in Brooklyn next to an overgrown parking lot filled with Puerto Rican Day parade floats and run-down classic cars. I then reached out to Brad Bell (Arcade Fire, The War On Drugs) at Public Hi-Fi Studios in Austin who helped produce some of the early tracks."
With Fraiture playing many of the parts himself on the album, it resulted in heavy experimentation in order to discover new sonic landscapes and fully capture how the songs should sound.
