You’d imagine, based on the band name alone, that Battle Tapes would congregate in a cluttered warzone of a studio to write their tracks. Far from it. The group’s frontman, Josh Boardman, has built a studio in his Los Angeles home that’s cosy, comfortable and perfect for hatching new songs.
The space is Boardman’s ‘ideas room’, where he sketches out blueprints for a track before the rest of the band puts in their parts. “Sometimes, it’s just me in the studio and I’ll get an idea that just happens so fast that I need to record it and work on it before anyone else gets in,” he said “It’s kind of unorthodox songwriting, I guess. Rarely are we in the room together when it’s happening.”
MusicTech was fortunate enough to steal a peek at the studio when we interviewed Josh – here’s more of it.
