Inspired By Your Conscience

It is very exciting to be in the studio recording this week.  We're five days into a ten day recording session and at the pace we're moving, we're gonna run out of songs before we run out of days.  As always, the feel from song to song is eclectic, but when you pull back and listen to them as an album, there is a thread going through everything, which probably is just that we are writing them.  Songs may not always be autobiographical, but they are usually inspired by your conscience. People have perspectives that are bred into them, the same way places have sounds. There is something about the soil, the water, the bedrock or lack thereof that effects the buildings and the music that is made in them. 

This week, we are sharing more video from the making of In Real Life, this time looking at the song Compromise as we were putting the final touches on the structure before the song was recorded. Hope you enjoy it.

Isaac, Taylor and Zac

I agree Zac, music is just another form of art, it's soul purpose is to make you feel something, it doesn't have to be based of anything non fictional,  and I can't wait to hear what you guys have come up with.

Run out of songs???   I am pretty certain you all have a few extra songs in your back pockets - just waiting to be played.

Toss in a couple acoustic freestyle numbers - hey - you never know what might jell.

(love those bonus tracks floating around at the end of the set list on many of your records)

I enjoy watching the making of something you all have done. Seeing how everything comes together, is so amazing because you get the ins and outs of it all. Thanks for sharing and so ready to see how amazing album 7 is. Hard work really pays off and is worth it.

The songs are eclectic because you three are eclectic in the sense that you have many unique experiences to draw from.  Then everything is pulled together by the shared consciousness siblings possess.  Add to that the chance to record in an iconic place known for a particular sound and you just know something mysterious and magical will be the ultimate product.

Yes, I believe there *is* something in the soil and the water and in the heads and hearts of all who enter those hallowed halls.  I know you'll soak it up like a sponge, or an oak with very deep roots...

People know when we're telling the truth: There's something in us that recognizes it, some primal tuning fork that I believe God installed in us to hear the truth inside ourselves, even if we try to ignore it.

What I possibly love most about Hanson music is that although pop culture trends and themes, eras and decades come and go, what remains constant with Hanson is that instead of changing themselves to adapt to exterior trends, they simply try to understand them through their own experience and perspective. They make art from what they know. 

The most interesting part about it is that you do hear "the times" in their music but there's something organic about their take on something or influence on a trend. They don't just pretend to be someone else if they think that package will link to a trend.

So true--the catchphrase around my hometown is, "There's something in the water." ;)
