“It all started about 4 years ago in Prague when we found out that we really understand each other. Absolutely. Everything came spontaneously and we spent a lot of time together playing songs that we both love. But then we started to feel the need to create our music. And so came writing. Writing about everything we just felt and experienced. I think we are the types of people who think things through. In music, this is doubly true for us. We wouldn’t release anything that we wouldn’t be 100% satisfied with. The tracks from our debut Sleepin’ With The Lights On are our personal memoirs. And in every song, certain time spent together plays its role.” Kristina
Their musical versatility is also confirmed by the fact that they arranged and produced the whole album themselves. Their ability to deliver ingenuity to their expression sets them apart today’s music and fashion-style trends, lets them stand out, and makes them sound so special.
“We want to create music that touches everyone and brings a real emotion that is not limited by modern prejudices of today’s styles. People today don’t want to waste their time watching a bad movie, but often don’t realize that they’ve lost a much more time choosing the perfect movie. They are afraid of wasting time nowadays. Most artists just adapt to attract the listener’s attention immediately, otherwise, the children will just scroll them away. Spending time being creative and being patient allows us to perceive music in depth, and we are proud that thanks to this, our music also gets depth,” says Jakub
“Maybe you know that feeling when you`re coming home, and it’s lit up inside and someone is waiting for you to tell you how he loves you. If you don’t know this feeling, we’d love to send it to you through this album. Because nothing in this world is more important than love.” adds Kristina.
