Thank you to everyone who has bought our Album, Kozmik Disko so far, your support means a lot to us. We thought we would share a few things that you might not know about the making of the album.
1. Some of the songs on this album go right back to the start of Birds and Beasts and are nearly six years old. The newest ones were a couple of months old when we started recording. It was hard to choose what songs to include on the album!
2. All of the artwork was created and produced by Leo with some artistic guidance from Anna. The animal characters began life as a sketch on a napkin and some of the textures we used to illustrate came from peeling paint on a fence in our garden.
3. Kozmik Disko was created and produced in our studio and mastered remotely by Abbey Road Studios. Each time we embark on a recording project we tend to do a bit of renovation, this time we painted the studio green!
4. The Album Kozmik Disko has songs inspired by - wolves, ants, bees, sharks, hedgehogs, lance-tailed manakins, scorpions, albatross and hippos.
5. We dropped one song from the album at the last minute, it was a really new song about angler fish. It will appear on the next album probably!
Here is a little video we put together showing some footage and pictures of the album's creation. Click on the picture to visit our YouTube, we would be very grateful if you took a moment to subscribe there too!!
