We did these couple of songs in 2012 - we wanted them to serve as a little bridge between our first album and what was yet to come. It was a chance to unleash a rawer, more urgent and less constrained side of us. An angrier one too. It's also our first recording with our (then) new guitarist, Sujin Thomas, and this marked his first foray into the recording studio.
It's July 2014 now as we type this, and we're currently back in the studio again, recording our second album with acclaimed producer Brad Wood. We're super excited about the new songs, and since we can't speed up the passage of time, we figured now's as good a time as any to release these stray ones into the world.
Why "Forgetting"? We collaborated with comic artist Troy Chin for his online interactive comic, called Forgetting, which the song All We Are Left With Is A Memory Of A Memory is the soundtrack to. His excellent noir-style comic is at www.drearyweary.com/Forgetting
- go forth and choose your own adventure.
Also, this our way of letting go of the past, whilst wandering through the present, always inching toward a yet-unmolded future filled with promise.
