Constant lockdowns have brought Loretta closer together as a group and the process of making ‘when i saw u’ was one the band is proud of. Recording the track at Nico Scali’s (keys/guitar) house, before being mixed by Nicolas Mendoza and mastered by Jamie ‘Chunkyluv’ Muscat, Loretta caught the vibe real quick once the demo came together.
Polishing the session off with Melbourne-based writer Sidney Rose, ‘when i saw u’ is one of Loretta’s most personal efforts to date.
“The process of making the song was really meaningful. Max and Nico put together a demo that captured a vibe I was really relating to at the time. I had a melody pretty much immediately and sent it back and that was it. It came together really fast and felt like it really meant something.”
Ellis Hall, Loretta
