Formed a few years ago by Dylan Nowik & Elizabeth Ibarra, Camp Saint Helene call to mind the '60s California folk scene with their gentle, waltz-like pastoral sound. In an interview with Connect Savannah, the Catskill, NY-based band credit the formation of their sound to Basement Floods, the studio owned by their drummer Alex P. Wernquest, where they recorded today's featured track.
"We did the record on eight tracks, so we have mono drums and some stuff stacked on one track," Wernquest tells the weekly newspaper. "But yeah, Dylan had some very specific sounds in mind. We grabbed some [influence] from The Zombies, and Black Sabbath is kind of a spirit animal of this band. We don’t necessarily sound like them, but we felt a lot of that stuff."
