Buchanan: Par Avion
Melbourne band Buchanan have released new single 'Par Avion' from their acclaimed debut album, Human Spring. The single follows on the heels of a busy couple of months for the band, including east coast headline tour, North American radio chart success, and a colorful showcase at this year's BIGSOUND festival.
"We were incredibly excited to take this album on the road and to cities we'd never played before", says lead singer Josh Simons. "The recorded versions of our songs have a lot going on, so for the live show we tore it apart, and honed in on what made each song special, building it back up from there. It's a very energetic show!"
Co-produced by Simons and Catherine Marks (Foals, Death Cab For Cutie, The Killers) the album Human Spring was recorded across seven different studios, with the bulk of the work done between Tender Trap studios in Northcote and Simons' home garage studio. "I really wanted to evolve past the DIY production of our first couple of EP's" explains Simons. And what better way to step it up than to have it mixed on an analogue desk by Andy Baldwin (Bjork, Midnight Juggernauts) and mastered by Geoff Pesche (Radiohead, Coldplay, LCD Soundsystem) at the world famous Abbey Road Studios.
