After spending the past five years writing and recording in the attic of Javièr’s childhood home, the band has finally started releasing their dream-pop gems into the world, inspired by the duo’s personal experiences of adolescence.

Following their recent single “Within”, the pair share “Every Day Is Blue”, a playful song about not feeling understood while suffering from depression.

Lead singer Roos states: “Depression is something that is hard to grasp if you’ve never suffered from it. I remember that I found it really challenging to communicate with friends and family who clearly had no idea of what it was like. They tried their best to say the right thing and to cheer me up, but it sometimes felt like they were unconsciously trivializing the state that I was in.”

”At the time the only thing that you want to do is curl up underneath a blanket and disappear. I think deep down you know that this won’t do any good, but it’s a piece of knowledge that you’re trying to ignore.”

“That’s why we decided to make the song quite playful; to highlight the contrast within. It’s almost a bit rebellious, which is an attitude that I remember vividly from adolescence, which is the main theme of the whole [upcoming] album.”
