Our first full-length album, Gone for a While, was recorded just around the end of our high school careers. This record digs into our initial inspirations. Our goal was to create a piece of art that our musician friends would fine interesting, but non-musicians would still feel it's approachable and enjoyable. Even after 3+ years, we still love these songs enough to play them live.
