The Like work with Mark Ronson
LA based quartet The Like's, latest Mark Ronson produced single "He's Not A Boy" is out now on limited vinyl and download, and as you might expect there’s a very nicely put together video to complete the package.
On working with Ronson, Lead vocalist, Z Berg, says, "What Mark did was systematically take the songs right back to their original form. We spent almost 48 hours straight with Mark arranging the songs properly before we went into the studio, and then we recorded them live to half-inch tape with one mic on the drums - which is terrifying, but after recording that way, I truly believe there's no other way to record".
Drummer Tennessee adds, "Before Mark, we recorded everything nitpicky and perfect, track by track. But on those great 60's records, the mistakes were some of the best parts of it. It was chaos most of the time - but it absolutely brought us together as a band. We recorded for six days with Mark - and we got nine songs. Then we did four days with Alex Greenwald and the Dap-Kings. It was miraculous and we became far more confident as a band".
