The Occupants Debut EP “Hindsight” – Across The Ocean

The Occupants Debut EP “Hindsight”

Well… after another long, difficult pregnancy, complications and a near-caesarean, that rare and special time has finally arrived again as The Occupants give birth to their fourth track, “Hindsight”.


As with their previous sessions, the bulk of the recording went down at Byron Bay’s Music Farm Studios, and they enlisted the very handsome and lanky Forrester Savell to resume his gig as midwife, creative svengali, desk helmsman and producer-extraordinaire to deliver this beautiful baby… and that’s where all birthing analogies will cease and desist before they get too, er, laboured. Ahem.

Once again, gun-for-hire, Troy Wright, was engaged to smash out the drums, and as you’d expect, he totally owned the kit. Likewise, ex-Sleep Parade and all-round talent Leigh Davies continued to apply his inimitable colour and texture to all facets of the music. In fact, seeing as Leigh had been collaborating with Flynn and Luke Gower (ex-Cog) pretty much constantly since they released first single “I’ve Been Thinking”, Leigh’s presence has been acknowledged by being made a full-time member of The Occupants.

Hindsight” (which clocks in at just over 9 minutes for the extended version) was yet another challenging concoction of varying musical components that was eventually somehow wove into a song. They’d say more except they feel it always comes across as kind of pretentious when they blab on about their “inspiration”, the meaning behind their lyrics, or what brand of incense they lit in the studio, etc. so they thought it was best that the song speak for itself and leave it up to the listener to decide.
