We’re launching our FIRST KICKSTARTER on April 11th for our 4th album, entitled TRUST ISSUES. We are very very excited about this new collection of songs, most of which have never been performed. We’re building on the success of our last album, “Something’s Rotten“, and pushing ourselves to do more with our music.
The Kickstarter will launch at 6pm on April 11th, and we’d love for you to join us on that page for an online concert at 7pm Pacific Time – we’ll be playing songs from TRUST ISSUES, answering your questions, and talking about the new album. It’s gonna be a great time!
On TRUST ISSUES, we write about the things that scare us and make us worry, and how we face them with bravery and knowledge… and how sometimes we don’t.
We’re using this album to challenge ourselves musically, layering our tight trio harmonies in new and unique ways, as well as adding adding piano and other new exciting instrumentation.
Our songwriting continues to improve as we explore and expand our range of styles, adventuring into new territories: sweet Beatles-esque rock, haunting ballads, and defiant nerd anthems. We are dealing more directly with the themes of self-confidence, social justice, and feminism, expressing these messages through the lens of our nerdy interests.
We plan for “Trust Issues” to have 13 all-ages songs:
- Tiny Little Octopus
- Nerd Love Song
- We Want Rey
- Robot vs Boy
- On The Case
- I Go Both Ways
- Acoustic Kitty
- I’ll Eat You Last
- Rocket Science
- The Weather (A Night Vale Song)
- Delta You Delta Me
There’s happy stuff, sad stuff, funny stuff, and angry stuff. So much stuff!
This album will be recorded by Kevin Hahn at Opal Studio, same as our last album, Something Rotten! We are so excited to work with this talented local producer once again!
We’ve proven that we can do the job now, and want to better communicate to fans and to a wider audience with the help of Kickstarter! Your pledges will help us hire studio time, enlist the help of visual artists for the CD and merch, and have the time to make this album exactly what we want it to be! If you pledge during the first day, we’ll also be more likely to get featured on the main Kickstarter page, which means more visibility.
We’ll see you on our Kickstarter page, coming at launch time!
