If you listen to our song “fragile” and look at this photo you can really feel the raw, painful depth of both…

Its been such a joy to finally watch these songs take flight, some of them have been with us for a long time now and have etched within them countless makeovers. Making an album is kind of like the birth of a child, there’s an enormous amount of preparation, planning and hope thrown into its incubation. Then the creative process, or actual labour carries its own energy, sometimes it can be harrowing or exhausting but we were among the lucky and it was such a ‘gift’. Sometimes its just inspired, the timing, the people surrounding you, the energy and support they provide, the talent and enthusiasm they bring to the party. We are so grateful and excited about this album, not to mention as overwhelmed as new parents who’ve just realised that now the real work begins…still, we’re more than ready to share this baby with the world.
But is it indietronica? Or is it electro pop? Or something else? … We just can’t work it out! haha
Anyway, let us know what you think!
Not only were we out in the middle of nowhere, but he seemed to be reading our mind (in the best possible way!) — the whole process was totally tranquil and sublimely good.
The best part is we’re nearly there … FINALLY. It’s been a long wait to get this album of indietronica and electro pop tunes finished, but we’re sure glad we did it with Pix in the end. Much love to you man!
Where exactly do we fit? What box would you like to hold our music in? Strange questions worthy of consideration… Primarily we write songs, as songwriters we don’t necessarily want to be confined by the instruments or ‘line up’ on any given day. Also, we are just two. We prefer it that way. Mostly.
So as a new ‘indietronica band’ (the closest apparently appropriate title), we’re wondering how the hell we’re supposed to get “out there”, get noticed and reach people… there’s so much amazing music currently circulating in the indietronica and electropop genre that you wonder how much else gets lost in the whitewash. And there you have it, once you’ve selected your box, title and market position you immediately begin to start getting stuck on all the little distractions that you’ve then aligned with and the insanity of comparison and appraisal of your own art.
What are we all chasing? And how far does that take us from our primary responsibility as artists… to help humanity recognise beauty!?!
Guess I just popped my own bubble…
