Video – The Piano Ambush

Here’s the second single from the upcoming album. The video shows us recording the song in the dark of the studio:
 

 
This instrumental piece was the last tune we recorded in our approx. 6 hours studio visit. We left it last because we hadn’t really got it together before the sessions (the piano player Olli came straight to the studio – we hadn’t had a chance to rehearse with him). So we thought there might be some hassle with the arrangement and cut the 7 other songs before this. But it didn’t take that long to record this song after all and the 4th take was the final one.
 
One is tempted with a song like this to produce it more, to make it bigger. And at one point I had some trumpets and tambourines and whatnot in my mind. But I came to a conclusion that I like it best when I just hear the band playing together. And I’m also lazy. So there’s zero overdubs in this one.
