Pollen was a surprise for us. We knew that we wanted to experiment and explore, but we weren’t entirely sure what the end product would look like. Ultimately, we tried to focus on the songs and the stories above everything else, and because of that it was easier to trust each other with all of the new textures. It’s exciting to put out a project that stands apart from a lot of our other songs, but at the same time still sounds like us.
We’re a duo who started making music together in college. After actively touring for a couple years, we decided that we’re big fans of making music together, but not fans of being conjoined at the hip in a stuffy rental car worrying that we’re gonna miss soundcheck. Now Magnus lives in Boston, pursuing a doctorate in Philosophy and nursing his obsession of the folk ballads of the British isles. Reid is in New York pursuing music through a solo project and studio work, and works as a part-time wedding officiant. We continue to write, record, and release music on Spotify and other streaming platforms as much living in different cities allows.
