About

We come from opposite sides of the world, two antipodean, kindred spirits lost and found in the big bad city of London. After one wonderful year of composing in 4 different countries - New Zealand (Christchurch), England (London), Scotland (Biggar) and Spain (Bierzo), this project is near completion.  We have inspired each other and have been inspired by the worldly environment of these vitally different vistas and cultures. 

NOW we have an amazing opportunity to record this album in the best recording studio in Greece (October 11th - 20th) with legendary recording engineer George Kariotis and we need your help to make it happen.  

Our targets:

AT £3,000 - We record with George in the studio.

AT £5,000 - We record with George in the studio AND hire a band to join us in the studio AND have the album professionally mixed and mastered.

AT £7,000 - We promote the album with PR professionals. There will be press, radio play, photo shoots, digital marketing and much more. The word will be out there!

All additional ££ will be spent on music promotion, producing music videos and general release strategies. 

What are we selling? 

The Album! This kickstarter is effectively album pre sales. We need to do this so that we have a financial base to make it. You will be the first to have copies of the album pre release! 

We have written over 50 songs in preparation for this album and are selecting the best 12 to record. Over time we will be back in the studio recording other tracks as singles or even as a second album.

What is the music like?

Maximum groove meets maximum chill. This mid-tempo collective incorporates English and Spanish dual vocals, smooooth bass grooves, dreamy piano jams, ambient space backgrounds, electronic pulse engines, complex ethnic rhythms, magical eastern choirs, flutes and more flutes, classical guitars, whale sounds, breathy breaths, falsetto yelps and chill out vibes.  

Bierzo is a collection of poems and sad motifs. It's often hopeful, and often sad. At times it is edgy and at others subdued. It is sometimes sexy, and sometimes it bold. It is surprising and satisfying.

Electronic Meloncholy, Hypnotic Bliss, Instrumental Extravaganza, Experimental.

Below, we have a few (demos) extracts from the album to satisfy your ears.

Why do we want to record this album? 

For us this album is an accumulation of all the learning we have done, all the time we have spent practicing and the different musics we have consumed from all over the world. This album is a part of who we are, and in many ways, is our way of giving back what we have borrowed from the world. It is a work which satisfies our desire to produce something that we are insanely proud of. Something to show for ourselves. It is the best thing we have ever done. 

Risks and challenges

Nuclear or atomic, nada o nadie, one way or another we are making this album.
