Amber Sun is a back to bare roots Rock album streaked with Punk and Grunge. The Naddiks spent two years putting it together and utilized both old and new technology to give it that raw live feeling. Turn it up, enjoy it! Amber Sun was produced by Joel Steenbergen (lead singer songwriter) and Richard Schiffer (Manager, promoter). The album was recorded and mixed at Infidel Studios by Sound Engineer Tim Duck late in 2011. Mastering was perfected by Don Bartley at Level 7 Studios in Sydney Australia. At the time of recording The Naddiks members were; Joel Steenbergen (Lead singer songwriter) Kurt Schiffer (Bass guitarist, backup vocals) Shaun Buchanan (Drums) Richard Schiffer (Manager, backup percussionist) Five of the album's songs were recorded to 2 inch tape as in the bygone era of Iggy Pop and The Sex Pistols. This was to aid in capturing a raw, live and explosive 'feel' which the band wanted to create. The Naddiks didn't want that over-produced digital sound that is rife in the industry today. The title song, Amber Sun, was recorded using hydrophonic microphones, which to date, has never been done before, so we would like to extend our appreciation to Tim Duck who utilized everything at his disposal to assist in creating the unique 'old mixed with the new' sound that was harvested within this song (you'll hear an ancient Hammond Piano at the end of the song as well). Of the 16 original tracks recorded, we narrowed the song base down to 11, including a remastered version of 'Still I'm Sad' which was originally recorded on they're debut EP (meant only to be a demo but took on a life of it's own) '1,2,3,4'. Amber Sun, the album, was a roller-coaster ride for The Naddiks who spent many 12 hour days in the studio trying to get the right sound for each song. From the exhortation of 'Slaves' to the eerie ambiance of 'Summer Haze', enjoy the ride.
