‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’ is co-produced by the band’s vocalist Daniel Cross andengineer/collaborator Lorenzo De Feo. The album was recorded at The Garage Studios, Hertfordshire and mastered by John Davies (Gorillaz, Joy Division, Savages) at Metropolis Studios. Dark, seductive, treacherous and clever, ‘…And Then The Rain Stopped’ is a masterful collection of tales themed around time, sex and obsession with a hefty dose of loss, regret and abandon, perfectly soundtracked by Birthmarks’ unique genre-bending take on discord and electronica.
The writing for the album coincided with the breakdown of an 8-year relationship, with Cross re-writing the majority of his lyrics and continually editing right up until the day he recorded vocals for the record. The brazenly personal lyrical content of the album draws you in deeper, with the album linked by common themes rather than a song by song basis.
Birthmarks are a London based rock band born from the ashes of their earlier moniker Little Death Machine, fusing elements of electronica, trip-hop and rock with an introspective take on songwriting, experimentation and production. The album is full of powerfully emotive songs that are delivered with raw, unapologetic honesty and paint a captivating landscape of the human condition.
Be sure to catch Birthmarks live.
