Frost on the roof and mist rising from the pond - even the fish looked cold.

Better in than out this evening - the lure of the studio.

"We were literally in one room together, it’s called The Wood Room, in Real World Studios outside of Bath in a little village called Box. We lived there for three weeks, ate every meal together and recorded in this room, with no headphones which for me was an extremely different recording experience than I’d ever done before. In the past recording was very isolating, kind of closed off in a little room with headphones. Sometimes you’re just doing your part or overdubbing the rest, so this was a really cool experience to just be facing each other in a small little circle and recording pretty much all live."

“The unusual materials that are exposed throughout the building are part of the idea of creating interior architecture that shows the guts of the building. I always use the word 'raw' when I talk about this building because we've stripped everything down to its raw state. It's part of this thing about Peter not wanting to cover everything up, not wanting to coat things with stuff. You see the material. You see the galvanised gratings, you see the combinations of stone and brick that make up the history of the building.” Peter Clegg of architects @fcbstudios who worked on the development of Real World Studios.

"If you ever work very late and through the night, normally in a studio you don’t know what time of day or night it is. Here you see the light fade, the sunrise and the mist coming in on the water.” @itspetergabriel
