Scott Starr - "In The Dark"

Artists' statement

- This is the first track out of 10 that I'll be releasing on vinyl in fall.
- To those I've been bouncing tracks to for thoughts, collectively, the sounds seem to be described as if "Peter Gabriel produced The Postal Service covering New Order." A few of the upcoming songs really reflect the New Order / PG vibes.
- All instruments, recording, mixing is me. So no one else to blame I guess. Much of the record is being recorded on an old Teac 4 track 1/4 tape machine, transferred back digitally and heavily processed through lots of analog gear I've collected over the years. It's been an ongoing experiment of sorts. Lots of "committing"
- rolling with the good, bad, sometimes magical, or happily accidental sounds.
- Working on putting a band together for a few shows in fall ( Depending on... the world.)
