Eskimeaux is the re-realized iteration of the previous collection of demos, Ixsixán. Originally written in 2009, these songs were given ample time to ruminate and be re-worked into the sonically cohesive, fully formed, calcified and crystallized songs that they are today. Eskimeaux is the second truly collaborative, now high-fidelity product of the duo. The album is going to be released digitally by Human Kindness Overflowing and as a cassette tape on BLIGHT. Records.
"Comparing this to their earlier works, vocalist Gabriella Smith receives company of a faint, but significally more computer-based production, in many ways like an isolated child of Hundred Waters, but sulked in a more organic, almost anatomical tonal structure."
- No Fear Of Pop
"Gabrielle Smith and Benjamin Schurr create haunting, atmospheric electronic music."
