Album Notes
After collaborating on a song ('Hopscotch') together, and driven by the closing of their favourite local record store, the duo decided to write and record a full-length album. Initially meant to be an experimental Lo-Fi/Avant-Garde project (naming CocoRosie and Sparklehorse, amongst others, as inspiration for the idea), they've decided against it, and went down a more Indie-Folk route.
With musicians such as Joanna Newsom and Roy Harper in mind, they wrote a minimalistic, live performance-sounding set of songs and arrangements. They've decided on two restrictions: no synths nor electric instruments are to be used (electric guitar and electric bass have been used throughout the record, but they are not featured too prominently) and no drums (tambourine, shakers, chairs and toys were used instead, as percussion).

The album was recorded between February 11, 2016 to April 12, 2016 (with the exception of 'Hopscotch', which was recorded during December 14-18, 2015). It was remixed and remastered during March-April 2019.

"...brings a fascinating balance between the folk tradition and the classical aroma of art music..." - Guy Tene (Tene G)
