Indie off-kilter guitar pop quartet, Ha the Unclear today release a new track recorded with legendary US producer Sylvia Massy (Johnny Cash, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Tool) at Roundhead Studios, Auckland whilst Massy was guest producer for the annual NZ Music Producer Series curated by Greg Haver and part of the Recorded Music NZ’s Tui Series. Final edits were added by Tom Healy (Tiny Ruins, Finn Andrews, Soaked Oats) at Paquin Studios.
Recording 'Julius Caesar' Sylvia used techniques including plugging a guitar into a wedge of Gouda (yes, the cheese), running a guitar signal through a lightbulb, using live satellite delay on the vocals and rewiring an old op-shop phone on the fly to use as a drum mic.
