Between new sounds and new cities, this year will see the release of a handful of brand new self-produced singles like “Way You Are.”

The lead singer, Daniel Ellsworth says, “Way You Are (ft. Ruby Amanfu)” is the beginning of a new chapter for us. All the new songs we’ll release this year are completely self-recorded (with an assist from Kyle Andrews on this one) and self-produced. With three of us now, we’re shifting how we write, how we record, and feeling freer than we ever have to experiment with what those processes look like. I moved out to Los Angeles from Nashville a couple of months ago for a change of pace and to try and bring some new outside influences into our music. We’re trying to be less precious with songs and just put them out into the world as we have them for people to hear. “Way You Are” features our dear friend Ruby Amanfu who kindly lent us her beautiful voice.”
