8 years of FAWM.
We are a husband wife duo. We tend not to stick only to one style - although dreamy shoe gaze trip hop is more likely our groove.
This year, we're going to do some simple guitar and piano tunes mixed with some of our usual beat centered minimalist pop. We'll get a late start this year because work is kicking our asses, but after the 6th, we're on.
sometimes we find a song that we'd like to collaborate on, but we cannot be required to do any lyrics (those are the hardest bits to get down, aren't they?)
Looking forward to hearing our favorites as usual and meeting new ones as well.

Got another one for ya, should be quick and easy, if you're interested? 😀
Thanks so much for your lovely comments.
Thanks for the meaningful comment Ru! Glad you enjoyed it. It was a mission to get it done, but I’m glad I stuck it out. I’m happy that the song translates well as a whole.
If you saw the Coachella with Prince and Portishead... that was THE best day in all of my SIXTEEN years of going to that festival. My best friend also made it for just that one day... just before they eliminated single-day passes. She leads a charmed life 😉
Madison shout out to ya. I look forward to hearing more of your songs!
Just sent you an email with a collab idea, let me know what you think!
Aww thanks so much. Hopefully we can make some good tunes <3 Looking forward to hearing your stuff!
Hi, looks like you're around so I'll pop by later.
Thanks Ru! Looking forward to hearing some new stuff from you guys! 😎
Heheheheeee! You know, I think I must've been having a down day when I wrote my bio!! Eeep! Will attempt some happy songs too 😁 X
Would be awesome to work with y’all again! I’m practically in the same time zone now, sooooo...
Hope you're back. Enjoyed your work in the past!
Well hello there! You in this year?
