Well it certainly has been an exciting summer! We made a big announcement on our Facebook page last week about buying our first house and moving to Pender Island, BC! We’re so excited about what lies ahead, and I’ll definitely be writing more later about the house and the move and the entire transition.
But today I wanted to give you all a behind-the-scenes look at our Exclusive Content for the month! One thing we love about this project is the ability to explore music and art in ways we haven’t done before, challenging ourselves to try new things and collaborating with other artists. This month we decided to make a wall-hanging inspired by the song Wooden Heart from our Visual EP, Where the Ocean Meets the Sky. We got in touch with our friend Ben in Philly, and he carved an image on lino for us and then we printed it onto pieces of cotton, added some dowel and string, and sent it out to all our subscribers! I had never done relief printing before, but it was so much fun to mix the colours and make each piece unique. It was a time consuming project, but I absolutely LOVE how they turned out, and I hope that all our subscribers do as well!
If you’d like to be part of the Exclusive Content Project, you can sign up HERE and we’ll send you one of this month’s Wooden Heart wall hangings. We are so appreciative of everyone who has come on board so far, and we’re really excited to continue to develop this project while living on the island and with our new album coming out soon!
I hope you’re all having a magical summer! Have you spent any time on art projects this year? Comment below and tell me what you’ve been up to!
