Nine Bands Share Their First Recording
Page 3 of 9
For musicians of all ages, one of the most exciting things in the world can be digging your teeth into a brand-new project. With fresh faces and skill sets, the experience can make music feel brand new again for many. So we appreciate it when bands are willing to step back and share earlier works that haven’t seen the light of day.
We asked eight acts, including Rubblebucket, FAWN and ARMS, to share their first recordings as a band and talk about this process, and they were generous enough to revisit their beginnings. Feel free to share your own first recordings in the comment section below.
3. FAWN – “Fur in Winter”
“The first song we ever recorded is called ‘Fur in Winter.’ It was released on Suburban Sprawl Music’s Annual Holiday Compilation. Its gentle, but it has teeth…a balance we often try to strike. In this song, you can really hear us musically tip-toeing around one-another, like there is apprehension in the room. The result is space. In hindsight, we really didn’t know each other then. Unfamiliarity almost deserves a partial writing credit on this one. It is the space. Not anymore. Now we’re like this: [crosses fingers].”
