Even the Beatles recorded covers of other peoples songs. Almost every artist does at some point. And now, Dylan and McCartney don’t write the same way any more with their heavy folk and Buddy Holly influences, respectively. They’ve evolved as artists do and as times change. I want to go back to a simpler, safer time, to the originals.”, says Zack, lead singer.
“I like the sound of those 60’s guitars, the amps, the effects, mics. All of it had a different sound than in todays music. There’s a movement back to vinyl in part because of the warmth of the sound that was inherent in analogue music recordings. That’s a sound we hope to re-create, to emulate. It’s the songs of our cousins and parents. It’s a type of music that’ll never fade away. Not if we can help it!”
“The 60’s music was filled with great harmonies and that’s what I love, so as Vocal Chords, that’s what we do! It could be classic rock or classic jazz or classic country or singer/songwriter. As long as it’s fun, we engage!”
“Sometimes we adhere so faithfully to the original, sometimes we add vocal lines where there were none just because they should have been there in the first place (in our view), they sound so good.
"It’s great fun to record these classic hits and to make the videos too. We haven't spoken about those, and that's part of the fun. We use originally sourced videos when possible and layer our musical recordings on top. Sometimes the lips match, sometimes they don't. Old meets new! New meets old! The effect is often wonderful and magnifies the musical listening experience when trying to find a reference point, an origin, a look at the fashions, the cars, the instruments, the dances, the crowds... it brings you back!".
