The following is a description of the music and artwork from the band.
For over a year, we've been exercising Music You Can Swim To for ourselves, drip-feeding it through our still breathing art blog - no social media, no gimmicks, no "Like"’s - just a total balls in the wind passion project. However, at this transitional point in our development, we’ve realized how important and accessible social media platforms can be. So if you’d like to stay connected with us on the electronic monster we like to call the “internet”, head on over.
As a testament to opportunity, we finally felt that it was a great time to arrange songs for an EP. Without the headaches and unnecessary hassle of traditional recording styles, this is full of all of those raw, sincere imperfections and hazy moments of the creative process. Each piece represents our passion for capturing what is real. We embrace spontaneity, but also appreciate refinement - a healthy balance of suffering and wonder.
Our campaign philosophy; be real and be simple. Understand that maybe it'll be shared, and maybe it won't - with absolutely no expectations. Respect peoples’ opinions with humble skepticism.
This EP was inspired by learning from your roots, your mistakes and the conscious yet unconscious feelings where humans begin to experience wonder. At this crux is where you find the animal side of your mind. Instinct is everywhere.
Submerge yourself and get lost trying to find is.
released 10 September 2013
