Born Cages at Mission
Recently signed to Razor & Tie, Born Cages chose Mission Sound to capture their melodic blend of guitar and synth driven songs. Led by guitarist Vlad Holiday of Jetlag Gemini, Born Cages will release their record sometime this spring.
We used a wide variety of new and vintage analog gear to capture the band’s sound. On drums, the Coles mics and Chandler TG 1 became favorites for the big room sounds on the record while a vintage U67 on the front of kit was squashed with an 1176 on stun for tighter ambiences. Guitars were recorded through Marshall, Orange and Fender amps using the venerable Shure sm7 and Neuman U87s.
