Pala was founded in late 2016 by Andy McErlean
. He recorded his initial demos with Chad Rockwell at Westfall Recording Studio
in Austin, Texas. For their debut EP, "Seven Earths", McErlean and Taylor Anderson teamed up to hone in the sound of Pala. The EP was produced at Anderson's production studio, Titan Audio
, located in Austin, Texas.
They self-produced the entire EP.
