Australian gypsy-ska rockers, Caravãna Sun return to Europe for their third summer, bringing with them their new independent album release, AYA. Launching AYA to a packed house at renowned Australian venue the Oxford Art Factory in November 2013, the band set off on a 46-show national fiesta tour of their home country. The 3 month tour was made up of headlining shows on the east coast of Australia as well as supporting Fat Freddy’s Drop on the west coast.
Having long been praised for the raw energy and emotion injected into their live shows, Caravãna Sun purposefully went into the studio aiming to capture the essence of a live performance. AYA was recorded in an old water tank come studio nestled in the mountains close to Australia’s famous surfing coast by Govinda Doyle in just over a month. The recording process steered well clear of post-production effects instead relying on the natural space and dynamics of the rooms. This theme was continued right through to the mastering by Grammy award winning William Bowen (Gotye).
