Connecticut-based dream-pop project Was and When released the debut single “Hang in the Balance”. Created by Michael Held only months ago, the project is something he has always wanted to do.
About the project, Michael Held stated:
“Was and When is a project I’ve always wanted to do but never had the courage or confidence to take the next step. I know it’s cliche but one day I had the realization that life is too short to sit and wait around for something to happen and just went for it. I started writing and reworking old ideas in late 2019 and was recording by the first week in January 2020.”
The debut track “Hang in the Balance” was written by Michael Held and mixed and mastered by John Naclerio, who also did vocal tracking, at Nada Recording in Montgomery, New York. Drums were done by Nick Restivo and instruments were recorded by Gus Morales in Monroe, Connecticut and Middletown, New York.
