2020 Remaster of Notos / Eurus. Split Vinyl. Side A: Notos, Side B: Eurus. 12" White Vinyl in Gatefold jacket, including the original art for each EP.

Includes lyrics insert and digital download card. Notos, released in December 2017, was named for the ancient Greco-Roman god of the south wind, who brought storms in the summer.

Musically, the record draws from the siblings' memories of summers spent exploring the Pacific Northwest with their grandparents, as well as their experiences with the frequent threat of hurricanes as they grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Thematically, the series considers the question: "where did our ideas come from?" Notos recounts a time when the duo weren't even aware there was a question to ask, and reflects on the backfire effect we experience when confronted with new information for the first time.

Once that first question posed in the Notos EP was asked _ "where did our ideas come from?" _ it opened the floodgates to more.

While wrestling with them all can ultimately lead to a fuller understanding of the world around you (and leave you with more empathy than you started with), it can also leave you feeling alienated from the communities you used to identify with.

Eurus, released in early 2018 as the second installment in a series, was a continued interrogation of the band's own beliefs, and as Eurus was the wind most closely associated with autumn, the record seeks to capture the feelings of dark woods, dry branches, dead leaves, and wondering who had migrated _ you, or your flock?
