Hear the pop-punk gem Headspace by Four Stars with us first! The record is out February 29.
“As soon as we booked our time with Nick Diener in March, we immediately began pre-production for Headspace in early February of 2019 with our good friend Javier Degante who helped produce our previous EP, Check, Please,” the band says. “Going into the pre-production, we already knew we were going to change our name to Four Stars. So, we saw this EP as a chance to redefine who we are as a band.
“Pre-production was done at the band’s practice studio and left us feeling confident after it was done. With the writing and making of Headspace, we wanted to push the boundaries of what we were capable of, both as people and as musicians. We wanted to be the best version[s] of both possible. That meant doing our best to be more healthy, both mentally and physically, and that’s where the name Headspace comes from.
“To us, Headspace is the area surrounding your general mental being. Often times, you need to take some time to ‘get yourself in the right headspace,’ and we wanted to make sure that we did that with this project. We made a promise to each other that we would give ourselves as much time as we need to make the best art that we possibly can. In the end, all the crazy diets, warmups, and exercise resulted in a sound as honest as our lyrics try to be. We hope others come to find as much joy in it as we do.”
