CONTACT Records with Spire Studio en Route from Boston to Austin

October 26, 2017

A self-described "post-apocalyptic pop" band, Boston's CONTACT blends airy tones of vintage synth pop with a dark, modern sensibility. In this video, we spoke with CONTACT about their three-day ride from Boston to Austin, Texas for SXSW, finding creative inspiration while on the road, and using Spire Studio to record a song en route.

“To have a quality mic that's honestly better than the one in my studio in the van...it was pretty uplifting to listen back and be like, 'OK, that's what I was going for, it actually sounds right'."
