James-Lloyd Hodges, one of the singers and songwriters of Avers, states in the interview “I think most of our other bands that we’ve been in have been that more traditional thing where you rehearse the songs and you go perform the songs and then you’re like, “All right guys, we’ve got three days booked in the studio. Let’s go try to record these songs we’ve been playing for a year.” Whereas this is like, “Hey, Alex has four bars of a vocal melody and a little tiny guitar part and we’re going to, tonight, turn that into a song…I think it forces you, and has forced us, to trust our instincts. If you’ve been in the studio a lot and you’ve made a lot of recordings, it’s a pretty easy tendency to just get stuck in your head and overthink what you’re doing, but if it’s 8 o’clock at night and you really want to have something that you can listen to and feel good about by 2 o’clock in the morning, you can’t sit there and spend an hour talking about what the snare drum sounds like.”
