“Despite it being their adopted hometown, Howling Bells have never recorded in London.
For new album Heartstrings the band decided to stick with the Big Smoke, laying down material at a London studio with Catherine J Marks and Alan Moulder.
An intense process, Howling Bells stuck to a firm schedule. ‘Having a deadline means you’re forced to make crucial artistic decisions in a very short time.
You don’t have the luxury of overthinking. I feel this process shaped the album. As a result, you become incredibly connected to the musical spirit of the band’ says frontwoman Juanita Stein. ‘We loved every second of it.’” <CLASHMUSIC.COM>
