Back in 2016, we decided to be brave and we challenged ourselves to do something super scary: we self-funded and recorded our debut album "Looking For Alaska." It turned out to be one of the best things that we have ever done; we are so incredibly proud of how it turned out, as we had so much fun recording it and thankfully for us, everyone else seemed to enjoy listening and purchasing it too!

Now it's been 2 years since that album was released, and since then we have been hard at work touring and writing new songs. We are so happy to finally have enough new songs to record our next album! We want this one to be even bigger and better than our first album, so we approached legendary NZ producer Ben Edwards and asked if he would work on our album. Luckily for us he said yes! As you can imagine, we are super excited about this opportunity, as Ben has produced albums for some of our favourite artists - Marlon Williams, Tami Neilson, Nadia Reid; the list goes on. 

While making albums is incredibly fun and rewarding, its also very expensive to do! That's where all of you wonderful people come in!!! We have a bunch of awesome rewards up for grabs (albums, t-shirts, and artwork) including some hand painted one of a kind pieces that are all crafted with love. 

We would absolutely love any support that you could give (every little bit counts) and we just can't wait to share all of these new songs with you all!!!

Risks and challenges

We have booked the studio time to record the album in the first week of December, 2018. We are working with awesome PR people to get everything ready for release, and have a release date set for mid May 2019. Very little could go wrong to delay the release happening on time - touch wood!
