Boreas / Zephyrus Split Vinyl. Side A: Boreas, Side B: Zephyrus 12" White Vinyl in Gatefold jacket, including the original art for each EP.

Includes lyrics insert and digital download card. Boreas, the northern wind, ushered in the harsh frosts of lonely winter.

The arrangements of this third installment evoke images of snow-blanketed darkness, candlelight behind cupped hands, and a vast night sky ribboned with stars and auroras.

As we wrote these songs, we found ourselves confronted with the ways we've personally and communally reflected the character of this wind _ how we often avoid discomfort, even at the expense of others, until we are left cold, hard, and unfeeling.

In this record, we ask the winter to instead kindle us into something warmer and softer than who we've been.

Zephyrus, the final cardinal wind of this project, brought the gentle warmth of spring that summoned up a new year of growth rooted in the fertile ashes of all the structures that keep us isolated and unfeeling _ the kind of growth we can see in ourselves, if we can muster the courage to be vulnerable.

The arrangements mirror and embrace this shift, rising up like tender leaves breaking through concrete and cascading down like mountain rivers surging with the first thaw of the season.
