Speaking about the L.P’s making band member Peter Winne stated “We made big sounds with nothing but three-part harmonies and traditional instruments. There’s no auto-tuning on the album, no computer-sequenced backing tracks, and no long cast of backing musicians. It sounds like something you would hear at a live show”.
