About

OUR DEBUT EP IS FINALLY HERE! WOWZA! 

After 4 years of rebranding, we're very excited to announce the release of our first EP, Backpack of Snacks. This record represents years of work — writing workshops, tours, demo recordings, scrapping everything, more writing workshops, recording again. We've really given this project our all, and we're excited to get something physical into your hands. In order to make this dream a reality, we are hoping to raise $7,000. However, we set the goal at $1 because we need all the help we can get!



WRITING WORKSHOP - COLOR THEORY:

This EP is the result of our experimentation in color. Back in January of 2018, we decided that we wanted to see how our art would be transformed if we perpetually saw the world in different colors. Using this logic, we each wore various color-lensed glasses from the moment we woke up, the the moment we went to sleep. To create a catalogue of songs to choose from, we both demoed out 1 song per color. Once a song was drafted to a point of completion, we would move on to another color. We did this with 6 different colors: pink, yellow, blue, green, red, and orange. The result - Backpack of Snacks

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE EP?

This small collection of songs was inspired by colors (as previously mentioned) and music created by industry giants that we respect and admire. Each track offers you a different vibe, though, all of them should get your butt moving. We married our love of 80's synthesizer sounds and melodies with our love of hip hop and r&b.  We took those inspirations and sprinkled them with a splash of new life experiences such as starting our music over from scratch, getting married and moving to a new city. 

This record is a depiction of how we see the world and our attempts to to find peace, truth, and sustainability without diluting our creative spirits. Each song tackles issues like, proving your self-worth, experiencing failure, technological progression and resistance, and love (duh y'all, we're married - you knew we'd hit this topic). We hope that our sonic narratives help you as much as they've helped us.

FINKEL IS EINHORN - 5 PANEL HAT (Mock Image)

Our dear friend Sam started a company called Branded Bills a few years back. They create quality products that represent the people that wear them. Just like life, their hats change and get better with time and experience. Each hat tells a story and the logos are forged into various leathers with hot iron.  For real though, we wear ours nearly every day. We wouldn't be selling these things if they weren't an excellent product made by awesome people. Comes with a digital download of the EP.
