Local band celebrates release of first single

“It was frustrating,” said the drummer. “It took time to find what fit the song.”

While creating music is a challenge for some, it came naturally for others.

McFarland said that his whole family is musical and noted local performer Buddy Hamm as an influence. Haddock knew he wanted to play the bass when his step-father played him the song “Higher Ground” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

When it came time to record the single, the band wasn’t sure what to expect. They were used to playing as a group, but in the studio, songs are constructed differently with each musician recording their instrument separately.

“It was weird,” said McFarland. “We felt really separated.”

The members of Thirty-Three came to enjoy the recording process and are excited to do it again for their second single. Hearing the finished product made all the difference.

“It’s awesome when you first record the song, but then hearing it mixed together makes it, like, whoa!” McFarland said.
