we’re ru (she/her) and ty (he/him). We make indie minimalist pop with haunting ethereal vibes. We are back for 9th fawm. We took two years off because we have been busy and life got in the way. Fortunately the pandemic has opened up some free time.
We’ve been slowly creaking out songs for an album. We’re hopeful this fawm will help get it done at long last.

Thanks for the listen!
Thanks for your nice comments about ‘warm body’ 🥰 so glad you enjoyed it! Haven’t had a chance to do loads more writing this week but on it again after tomorrow xx
Hey! Yeah, I’m here....just having slow start because I’ve been busy at work 😀
thanks for the kind comment on my song. I guess I was thinking of "invisible hand" in economic terms, Adam Smith's (?I think) euphemism for free, unregulated markets. I was thinking about the ways that legacy manifests in my daily life.
Thanks a lot for giving my track a blast and commenting 😀 I think your suggestion of adding some ethereal vocals could work rather well on this, so would indeed be interested in giving that a go. Thanks a lot 😀
Hi, Ru! I plan on trying to write some this month. Trying to shut my brain off and let things just flow as they come. I’ve been hitting some road blocks with inspiration words lately. Hopefully that changes! Happy Fawming.
Happy FAWM guys! Ru, the vocal processing is the telephone effect preset on Izotope Neutron 3 Elements... i think it's just EQ, or maybe EQ with some saturation?
I'll be lurking a bit and listening. I've been writing a lot of music (mostly instrumental) and working on audio but I may drop a tune or two this month. I'm hoping I can...
Thanks so much for your kind words! I've not been FAWMing very seriously for a few years too. Glad to be back, it is great fun. Yeah you guys have awesome influences listed as well. I know and dig them. 😀
But then you MUST check out Sanford. Verb Hold is fundamentally different to a long tail. When you press it, it freezes the verb in place so that it does not decay while you hold the button. Makes amazing textures.
Hope to hear from you this year!
Hey Ru & Tyler! I know things may be a bit in transition for y'all right now but still hope you'll join us this year.
Sooooo... Are you in?
Yoooooo! Your new house have a big ol' studio? 🙏
