BBC Introducing X Abbey Road Studios - The Goa Express

Burnley's indie-rock quintet The Goa Express spent some time in our Gatehouse studio last year as part of our BBC Introducing sessions, recording, mixing and mastering two brand new tracks, which will be ready for release this year.

The band, who have been performing live with indie giants such as Cabbage and The Orielles, found a love for an array of alternative music from ‘60s garage bands to late ‘80s indie-dance hybrids, which has closely united the band. Together, James Douglas Clarke, Joe Clarke, Joey Stein, Naham Muzaffar and Sam Launder, each contribute to a wall of diverse sounds that become hard to pin down with their ever-changing, experimental sound.

Behind-the-scenes with The Goa Express

Watch the band behind-the-scenes recording two new tracks in our Gatehouse studio.

New tracks Second Time & Overpass, which were premiered by BBC Radio 6 DJ Steve Lamacq, were recorded and mixed by our senior recordist Gordon Davidson, assisted by George Oulton and mastered by Alex Gordon, all in the space of three days in our Gatehouse and Front Room studios.

Listen back to the tracks being played on Steve Lamacq's Radio 6 show last week.
