The debut album, Finding ourselves in all things, features two lengthy tracks, standing in stark contrast to each other: Melting with butterflies is brimming with life. Chaotic, hysterical and joyous - celebrating the viewpoint of all small things and their seemingly frantic nature. The way mountains make love is equally intense, but with a quite different energy – a slow moving organic unity vibrating with the frequencies of everything big and ancient.

Both tracks explore and elaborate on its respective idea. Sonic layers unfold and overlap in long arches. The recording is representative for the duo’s way of thinking about form and musical storytelling through an extended use of their instruments’ possibilites. The vertical is always present in the horizontal and vice versa.
