If you’ve been listening to Aussie music any time over the last ten years, the chances are pretty good that you’ve heard an album recorded at Melbourne’s iconic The Studio’s In The City. Now, after ten years of operation, the studio has announced it’s changing its name to Homesurgery Recordings.
Founded back in 2007 by Shihad drummer Tom Larkin, The Studio’s In The City has seen some of Australia’s finest musicians and producers work within its walls, overseeing the recording and production of albums by Calling All Cars, High Tension, VANNS, and Northeast Party House.
Likewise, the studio has played host to ARIA Award-winning producers such as the lateJames Lewis (Arctic Monkeys / CeeLo Green / Charli XCX), and Matt Lovell (Eskimo Joe, The Mess Hall, Shihad).
“I founded The Studios In The city in 2007 when I happened upon a project studio for long term rent,” explained Tom Larkin. “I moved a ramshackle amount of equipment in there and began work straight away on the debut album for a band called Young & Restless, that record went on to win a J award for Unearthed Album Of The Year”.
Since then, the studio has gone on to become known for its welcoming and nurturing environment, as explained by members of The Getaway Plan.
