Making an album is like trying to solve a jigsaw puzzle from memory. Through diligent rehearsal and smart songwriting you can create a mental image of the record to work from. As one bald 90’s alt rock singer put it, you know how the pieces fit. The hard part is figuring out, through repetition and experimentation, how to get each individual piece to cohere into a meaningful whole.

Invisible Oranges is proud to present a behind the scenes look at the upcoming debut album from Take Over And Destroy. Each week we’ll be hosting a making of video, showing the band hard at work crafting their self-titled release, which will be out October 7th via Prosthetic Records. The videos themselves are also like a puzzle. In this first installment the band toy around with a few pieces, a janky piano track, a righteous harmonized guitar lead, but don’t show yet how those pieces fit together. Given the band’s penchant for gothic melodrama, building intrigue like this feels natural.
