Slenderbodies writes songs for you to experience like a blanket or a warm breeze of equatorial air. The California based duo met while attending a University and came together as a creative force 3 years later. The two wrote, recorded and produced their debut album “sotto voce” over the span of a month and 380 miles. The result was an emotionally impactful, sonically soft collection of songs, with intricate airy guitar work complemented by gentle vocals and present drums. With vivid imagery at at the forefront of vocal waves, the duo paints portraits of siren songs, sultry nights with foreign lovers, lost romance and home. Almost a year following, they have returned with fabulist, the surreal story of two entwined souls, drawn out to sea together.
