EN The Saxophones was loosely started over a decade ago by Alexi Erenkov but only gained full momentum and dedication in recent years. If You’re on the Water EP came in 2016 with a knock-out title track that was inspired by a tumultuous time over a summer week that saw suicide, the transition of a relationship, and Erenkov and his father being involved in a nearly fatal boating accident. Thankfully things have calmed down since then and Erenkov and his bandmate/wife Alice Alderdice have remained focused on making their new album. 

The songs for this album were formed and written during a period in which the pair were living on a boat during a very wet winter in the San Francisco Bay Area. Much of the music was written over rainy mornings on acoustic guitar inside the cabin of our boat and outside of the city in a little guesthouse. Taking inspiration from 1950s exotica and Hawaiian albums, 1970s outsider Italian songwriter Vittorio Impiglia and a host of third-stream and West coast jazz records, the result titled Songs of The Saxophones is a unique offering that weaves between dream pop, minimalist surf and deeply textural compositions.

C'est Karma has played music all her life but it all got very serious when she strummed a guitar for the first time in the summer of 2015 and started busking in Luxembourg. With her smooth and smoky voice that cuts right through every venue she creates an intimacy that reminds of Daughter. But be warned: C'est Karma has the power of a young, unstoppable Sinead O’Connor.
