While White Label Analog self-produced the record, allowing them the autonomy to create without outside influence, they turned to a number of mixing engineers to deliver the fully realized sound they were seeking. That collaborative effort, highlighted by 11-time Grammy nominated mixing engineer Mark Needham (The Killers, Saint Motel, Imagine Dragons), as well as Dwight Baker (Kelly Clarkson, Missio, Blue October), Mark Dufour (Ghostland Observatory, Vertical Horizon) and Chris “Frenchie” Smith (Gary Clark Jr., Built to Spill, Jet), allowed the band to achieve the most fully realized iteration of each of the 11 tracks on the album.
The result is an eclectic group of songs that seems to pull as much from pop rock traditions like The Killers as they do from indie bands like Two Door Cinema Club and Modest Mouse. Songs like “Rainmaker” retain infectious melodies while simmering with big rock bombast. In an era of convergence between indie rock and pop music, White Label Analog is the daring alliance between the two. Call it indie rock for the poptimist generation.
