‘Feelin’ Kinda Lucky’ is the first single from Nick Corbin & The Hang Ups, recorded direct to tape at Kitty, Daisy & Lewis’ Durham Sound Studio in Kentish Town.
Dean went along to the recording session and photographed Nick, the band and Lewis Durham as they worked on the songs. The collaboration Nick has with his touring band known as the Hang Ups brings a raw edge to proceedings; a recording that captures all the energy of live performance but in the studio. The result is an uplifting and positive track, Nick says “‘Feelin’ Kinda Lucky’ is about waking up and feeling as though all is right in the world. You don’t know why or how but you carry that energy and satisfaction through the day. We tried to capture that with the musical arrangement too - there are these breaks throughout that build anticipation about the next section, culminating in a raucous outro, where we intentionally sped up, taking advantage of the freedom the analogue recording process gave us” “I had recorded at Durham Sound with Phono 48 a couple of years before and knew we could get a sound reminiscent of the Muscle Shoals studio, particularly with the rhythm section. Combining that with a few other Soul, Jazz and even Americana influences from the other guys in the band has given us a really refreshing mix of old and new – we hope people will find it an uplifting song to listen to!” ‘Feelin’ Kinda Lucky’ is the first of two new recordings which will sit either side of a limited edition 45, now available to pre-order from www.bigacrecords.com.
