DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW
we believe each piece is greater than the whole. every song on this LP is a separate endeavor, inspired by different things during different times in our lives. we’ve always felt that the emotional power music can give to anyone starts with just one moment. this is the motivation for why we strive for wonder in everything we do. it’s when our subconscious is ensnared and makes us feel connected to something huge. “Like Darkness Needs the Light”, taken from a song on the album, references the harmonious contrast between what makes us laugh and what makes us cry; our fear of death and our fear of life; our love of truth and our need to lie.

“MUSIC YOU CAN SWIM TO”, hitherto and henceforth, acknowledges itself as a two-headed sea monster of both PLEASURE and BUSINESS operating under one sole umbrella.
“Enlightenment is not imagining figures of light but making the darkness conscious.” – Carl Jung
The most beautiful thing about sharing a musical canvas is the insight into a different world of thought. A great collaboration is like having a stimulating conversation, where both parties are always enthralled by what they have to say. In this exchange, Ichion had a track of ambient, glitchy sounds for which he specializes in. I used that energy – the swells of glass-textured sound waves, the prickling static – and wrote a melody and lyrics that were appropriate for both the music and song title.
“Theravada”, the song title, is a devout school of Buddhism drawing its teachings from the earliest record of such knowledge. When first listening to Ichion’s initial track, I couldn’t help but recognize the constant droning of a low frequency. My guess was that it was Ichion’s intent to reference Buddhist chanting, such as the OM mantra. The first who used this kind of meditation must have been aware of its physiological effects on the body. According to Ajay Anil Gurjar and Siddharth A. Ladhake’s journal on “Time-Frequency Analysis of Chanting Sanskrit Divine Sound “OM” Mantra”, they state that “Mantra is intrinsically related to sound and sound is reverberating in everything in this universe. A Mantra is a sound repeated over and over until it integrates into our consciousness – frees the mind from its constant doing, and elevates us to an altered state of awareness.” In other words, frequency is the catalyst of our world, so how could it not affect our body?
