Here's The Stirs with their new song "Eyes Wide Open". The band wanted to get back to real sounding rock music so Tractorgrease was a great fit. We used all real takes and real sounds with real drums. Normally with a young band it'd be tough to do this but at 16 and 17 yrs old this band can play. Stay tuned for their EP to be released soon.
The song was recorded at Tractorgrease Studio during the Summer 2010. The video was shot with the help of Adam PW Smith.
The fine folks at 89.5 The Hawk continue to build the music community here in the Fraser Valley. In co op with Tractorgrease we are bringing music industry professionals in to teach the tips and tricks that lead to a successful career.
