Drum Tracks for New Album Finished

We (especially Timmy) are excited to announce that we’ve finished recording drums for our upcoming album! Although we’re still unsure of even an approximate release date, we’ll continue to post updates here as we make more progress. For now, here are some new photos from our latest recording session taken by Sida Li. More details to come!

EP Review by The Sirens Sound

We’d like to thank The Sirens Sound for their positive review of our EP, comparing it to Arcade Fire and The Divine Comedy.

“This kinda reminds me a bit of The Divine Comedy and The Arcade Fire. The sound is not necessarily the same, though, but it’s what comes to mind from the word go. Very energetic and rhythmic sound that tends to flow between high and low keys. I admit it’s really beautiful though. Very hard to tag as well. For The Birds is on purchase only at this point but if you can go get it or at least give it a thorough listen. I did and I dig from the very beginning. Lyrics are quite good as well.”

New Recording Sessions

It’s been a little over a year since our debut EP, For the Birds, was released and we’re excited to announce that we’re finally back in the studio! We’ve started recording for, what will hopefully be, our first full-length album at Expression College in Emeryville and will continue to work on it over the summer. More details soon!
