Lewis sits at the drum kit, sticks in hand playing a steady  beat in VIBE Recording Studio, Manchester. In the picture, the drumkit starts about two thirds of the way up, surrounded by hushed blue live room lighting and decorative long rug.
Boni playing guitar in the live room, staring down at his pedals set over a backdrop of toned down blue lighting with the fancy rug underneath everything.
Ethan, stood one half to his side, one hand hanging off his belt, sings confidently into the VIBE Recording Studio microphone in Manchester. The vocal booth is laden with long curtains, acoustic treatment and fancy fairy lights round the top.
Sagar stares at the screen, flanked to the left by a white yamaha hs7 speaker and beyond that a black genelec 1031a speaker. The red lighting casts shadows over acoustic treatment and the bright and colourful MIDAS vintage mixing desk is supporting.
Dave hunched over a complicated set up of keyboards, synthesisers, drum machines and more. He's in the live room at VIBE Recording Studio, Manchester. The lighting is dark blue and all the equipment's lights glow brightly
a string quartet play three violins and a cello between them, all smiling and having a good time sat in a semi circle in the middle of the live room at VIBE Recording Studio, Manchester
