NEW SINGLE, “LANCASTER”

In preparation for our upcoming release, we filmed a live session of a new single, “Lancaster”. It was shot in the Sound Stage of the Woodwards building, by the wonderful filmmaker, Brendan Prost.

We are excited to announce our first show back since Alea’s vocal injury; along with Joyce Island, we will be opening for The Good In Everyone’s EP Release Show at The Biltmore on Saturday, July 26th, and that’s only the beginning of what we have coming up, so keep your eyes open,  more updates to follow!

A Short Message Regarding Writing and Recovery

Hello everyone, thank you for being patient with us as I (Alea) sort out my health problems. I’m very happy to say that I’m on the road to recovery, and I’m currently rehabilitating my voice. We’re hoping to get things rolling next month; we’ve been sitting on some new material that we recorded in March, and we’re very eager to share it with you. Aside from the new stuff we’ll be releasing, we’ve also been working on new songs in a much more collaborative way than previously, and it’s been a struggle to say the least. The band has had a major shift from “singer-songwriter with backing musicians” to “three unique, individual, multi-instrumental musicians with songwriting and vocal capabilities”, and right now we’re trying to figure out how best to approach the new dynamic that has opened up for us within our creative process. We feel like there is so much we are capable of, we could branch out in so many different directions, and the opportunity that that presents is exciting and also terrifying.
In the meantime, we’re getting the details of our new releases settled, and as things fall into place we’ll be updating you; we’re beyond ecstatic to begin playing live again, so expect us back with a ridiculous amount of vigor. There are good things ahead!

April 2014 Update

Hey everyone, it’s been a long time since we’ve really been clear about what we’re up to, so here’s a run down of how the past couple of months have been.
We played a showcase at The Cellar as part of The Cellar Launch Project in February, and at the time I, (Alea) had a bad cold, but felt okay about performing and I sang anyway. My voice did not take well to it, and the next couple of days I lost my voice. It has not recovered since then, and I have been doing my best to figure out what’s going on to get myself back to full health.
We went into the “studio” (or rather, Jonathan Anderson’s basement) to record our first new songs since officially becoming a band, and we have a vlog about it here. It was a great experience for us; we learned a lot and we feel good about the results. For me, the change from my singer-songwriter-esque writing in Offerings, and the writing I’ve done with the band on these new songs is significantly disparate; having the thoughts and influences and contributions of Jeremiah and Patrick has created this whole new headspace from which I write, and though this growth has been positive it has also been challenging. Now that we’ve put in all the hard work of creating, re-working and recording our efforts, it will be really great to find out what you think of the band dynamic we’ve been crafting since Offerings came out.
Despite my illness, we have a lot of good things to look forward to when the time comes. I appreciate the support people have shown, and I am going to be very, very ecstatic when I am able to sing and perform again.

Until we have further news, all the best

ALEA RAE MAKES A VLOG

It’s November 25th, Alea’s birthday! To celebrate, we made a video on the weekend introducing ourselves, with some sneak peaks into the studio where we were recording some demos. This will hopefully be one of many ridiculous videos we make in the future. Happy late November! x

Flies

Hey everyone, we are proud to present a new song called, “Flies”, performed live in Jeremiah’s bedroom. We’ve been working on other new material, but we wanted to give you a taste of what’s to come.
