Writing a new record isn’t an easy feat for a much-hyped band like the Acorn — their song ‘Crooked Legs’ even had Kanye West blogging about them. So it made sense for them to isolate themselves at a cottage in northern Quebec to write most of what is now their new album, ‘No Ghost.’
The band reveled in their surroundings, even setting up microphones on a dock to record the sound of frogs. But the blissful scenery couldn’t quite stave off the pressure of creating music.
“I think we did feel like we had to come out of there with something — not necessarily the whole record, but something,” singer-guitarist Rolf Klausener tells Spinner. “So there were definitely times where I think we were pushing ourselves to write.”
