Head North recently teamed up with The Smoking Popes’ Mike Felumlee for a Live From The Rock Room session, recorded in Felumlee’s home. Hot off the recent release of their debut full-length The Last Living Man Alive Ever In The History Of The World. The song “Hibernation Hymn” is a solemn track with heart and soul with lyrics like, “just another day, just a fraction of life, pastel in a muted frame.” Check out the video and a quote from the band below.
“The recorded version of ‘Hibernation Hymn’ features some avant-garde field recordings in the background. After Brent did his take of the song, we linked every XLR the studio could muster and ran a mic outside. Brent got on Alex’s shoulders and held it up to record these birds chirping. After that, I took it down to the edge of the lake (Lake Hopatcong, NJ) and ran my hands through the water. I love that we did that; it was the second last day of recording, and we were all so happy with what we had created. The vibes were great, and it’s a nice dichotomy to the direction of the song, which is I think why we wanted to do it. Definitely one of my favorite parts of the record.” [Photo by: Dan Wallach]
