Deadly Summer Sway
Devonport's favourite sons The Checks return with their third album, Deadly Summer Sway, produced by the band and grammy award winning producer Bassy Bob Brockman.
In early 2011 The Checks took up residence in a semi-abandoned building in the neon guts of Auckland's CBD. Office space was converted to recording studio; dingy walls that look like they would taste of capers and grimy benches became pinup space for song forms and artwork. Treacle Toffee World (their pre-england practice/writing space) was born again.
A month out from zero hour, Bassy Bob flew in from New York City and became one with the band, engulfed every night in the hectic world of The Checks creative process. After three intense weeks demoing the new tracks, the album took shape just in time to enter the analogue playground of Roundhead Studios.
Deadly Summer Sway combines crisp warm tones of ribbon mics, The Who's 1974 Neve mixing console and twenty four track tape with a hip hop producers digital swagger. The raw punk energy present in their early sound has evolved into a more colourful and intricate sonic weave.
