Bastille – The Anchor – Quarantine Edition

So, given that quarantine is a thing, some of us in the Bastille Stormers group on facebook decided to collaborate on a cover of a Bastille song, specifically The Anchor. Liv Baker-Mendoza (Guitars and bass) had the initial idea, and I offered to mix the project. As well as mixing, I also ended up doing some programming on the project, as well as mastering it. I play the Rhodes you hear throughout the whole song, which is first heard along with the lead vocal in the intro, and I also played the synth melody in the choruses, the strings at the end, a sub bass that plays throughout the whole song, and some additional brass parts in the bridge which are very heavily treated with effects.

Shoutouts to the other awesome musicians that were involved on this project:

Beth Goodchild: Drums

Joshua Ulysses: Vocals and backing vocals

And of course, written by Dan Smith, and originally performed by Bastille.
