After meeting via Soundcloud, Collins and Lachhani began vibing off each other’s music and approach to their art. In 2018 they began to work together, developing a number of tracks but eventually parking the project as other life commitments got in the way. Fast forward to 2021, while clearing out old hard drives, Collins rediscovered the recordings and was “blown away” by the music already put down,” we’re told. Together they began to rework and develop the project further, resulting in a seven-track album.
Ahead of the release, the pair have shared “Jungle Times,” where an atmospheric dreamy opening giving way to an idiosyncratic breakbeat and whispered vocals from Lachhani.
