Fun with photos! In this week’s video you get to watch us play dress-up a little, dance-show a little, and stop-motion a little…

We’ve been in a bit of a motown phase and some of the sounds we’re experimenting with in this song pay homage to the greats of that era. We make no claims to replicate their sounds of course, but we’ve been feeling inspired and wanted to throw some of that into the mix.

As we recorded this song, I was reminded of how fun it is to play with background vocal parts. I love just experimenting in the moment and seeing what we come up with. I think you’ll be hearing more of that in the remaining few songs… 🙂

I Promise To 12.11.11

I’m really happy with how this song turned out. You get to hear some more cello–acutally, recording this song was my first ever attempt at playing the cello. Let me tell you, cellists make it look much easier than it really is!

As I was writing this song, I was aiming for a vulnerable yet not whiny sound and feel. The song is supposed to feel very intimate and close. This way when the bridge comes it opens everything, which I personally think makes for an exciting dynamic arc. But that’s enough of my babble, I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do.

Peace,
Eran

Tune The World Out 12.4.11

And now for something completely different!
We’re a little late for Halloween, but any time is a good time to smear some blood on your face… right?

A couple more firsts this week. Eran played the cello for the first time! Our good friend is loaning us a cello and it’s been good fun playing around with yet another new sound.  In terms of video, this is the first time we’ve gone with an idea that is so ‘simple’ in concept. Just a face. Well, four of them, overlapping and interacting. But at its core the video is just a face, which leaves a lot of room for little expressive details as well as your own interpretation while you watch.

And, it’s the first time I’ve been a zombie!

Enjoy, and always be prepared for the zombie apocalypse,

Allie
