We made a little clip for each song from Souvenir and put together this “Track By Track” video. Some of them are serious, some are funny, some of them are just weird. We’ll be releasing more webisodes about the songs in the future, but for now we’d love to hear what the songs mean to you. So if you feel like it, check out the video below and drop us a line in the comments on YouTube! We’re touring North America with Banners and The Moth & The Flame. We’d love to see you out there. Tickets are on sale here. And last but not least, if you haven’t gotten Souvenir yet, we still have some deluxe bundles in our store, with limited edition shirts, vinyl, etc. Love,
we were young when we fell in love for the first time, and we felt invincible. for a moment, everything made sense. all the pieces fit together. we moved quickly and the lights kept turning green. but as the momentum grew, the world became disorienting. we could only focus on one distant point at a time, and that point had to be the same for both of us.
life moves slower now, without you. i know we can never go back to the way things were, and i know that is my fault. but if you’re out there and you happen to see this-
please, don’t forget me.
We filmed a bunch of footage while making our new album, and we’ve cut it up into a handful of segments called the “Souvenir Archives.” Here’s the 3rd episode where we go for a drive, sing along to “You Can Call Me Al,” and talk about writing “Vice” in the car.
Today Souvenir is finally out in the world (Vinyl & CD // iTunes // Spotify // SoundCloud). We decided to take our time with this one, making a promise to ourselves that we wouldn’t release ANYTHING until all three of us felt like we had put every ounce of our hearts and souls into it. It is a very personal record for us, at times about frustration and loss, but ultimately about realizing and embracing how unpredictable life can be in all its beautifully messy glory. We hope you enjoy it, and we want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts, new fans and old, for supporting us and giving us the incredible opportunity to make music every day.
P.S. Tickets to our tour just went on sale HERE. We hope to see you on the road!!
We promised ourselves we wouldn’t release another album until we felt there was something we needed to make. It took years of our lives, but we finally finished it. It’s called Souvenir. We hope you enjoy it. You can hear it HERE.
We will be touring America coast to coast, including a stop at SXSW, playing these songs live. We’d love to see you out there. Tickets are on sale Friday at 10am local time HERE.
We’re sharing some videos that show the process of making the album. Catch the first two (so far) HERE.

We are very pleased to present the video for “What Am I Becoming?” ! We shot, directed and edited it ourselves, and we’re super proud of it.
The video is about a man, played by Kyle Wilson, slowly losing his mind in his solitary existence. We tried to capture the feeling of restlessness of living in solitude, the absurdity of the things we do when no one is watching, and the risk you run when it’s so easy and convenient to live a life isolated from the world.
Watch it HERE or below.

We also put together a video of us recording “What Am I Becoming?” at home, where we made most of Souvenir.

The official video for “Keep It For Your Own”!
When working with Brian (Danger Mouse) we all decided to come into the studio with absolutely nothing, to build something from scratch. This was the first time we had done something like this, but it also felt very appropriate, as we were in the habit of doing things completely different than we had in the past, working more collaboratively as a band than we ever had before. It was a very interesting experience. Brian is much more conscious of structure than I am. I think I usually end up letting the melody dictate the structure, trying to keep melodic flow. Brian likes to play with structure more. We tried countless different arrangements of this song, and finally found one that worked for all of us in a natural way. I really love how this song ended up, when I think back to the process of making it, it feels kind of mysterious. I’m not sure where exactly it came from.
