Stolen Diamonds was our seventh studio album. We chose to record for the third time with friend and Producer Jan Skubiszewski, this time at Red Moon Studios in Gisbourne, in the countryside outside of our home town Melbourne.
We wanted to create an album full of songs that would translate directly onto an international festival stage. That’s really been the broad ambition of each album since Steal the Light (2013). You could say that Steal the Light (2013), Rising with the Sun (2016), and Stolen Diamonds (2019) work as a trilogy - all produced with Jan, and all an integral part of our live sets around the world.
In terms of the production, we weren’t afraid to add layers and experiment with sounds outside our usual collection. But we also kept coming back to the simplicity of the melodies and the song’s direct impact.
