Hi,

The middle section of Backchannels is absolutely gorgeous.
And the tone of the guitar is so reminiscent of Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden.

How did you achieve that sound?
Amp?
I assume single coil?

Cheers.
Dan

I was trying to remember exactly how we did that. I think it was the Harmony Rocket on the bridge pickup through a little black Princeton, then run through a tube-tape echo and master room reverb. But the real secret to it is smacking the guitar with the flat of your fingernails. Not too hard.
