HARD FI have finished work on their debut album after literally road testing the LP.
The band are set to release ‘Stars Of CCTV’ on July 4 following the single ‘Hard To Beat’ – due out on June 20 – and adopted a strange technique for the final mix-downs.
Singer Richard Archer told NME.COM: “Because we don’t have a proper mixer, to make sure the mixes were sitting correctly, we’d drive around in our producer’s BMW which he picked up for £500 and listen to the tracks. Most people are going to listen to it in their cars and bedrooms – if it works well in the car you can’t go far wrong.”
The group recorded the album at their own Cherry Lips studio in their hometown of Staines.
