The debut LP from ambient folk duo Nassau is a reflection of change. Songwriters Justin Wilcox and Jeffrey Silverstein started recording together in Brooklyn two years ago, following respective projects in Baltimore and Chattanooga. Since then, Wilcox has married and Silverstein got engaged, finished school, and relocated to Oregon. Heron, which follows their 2016 EP, carefully absorbs the transition and finds balance. Meditative synth textures and guitar work underscore Wilcox’s raspy, measured twang. "They flood their songs with colour," says Gold Flake Paint, "their eyes always looking up and out in to the world rather than the furrowed shadows that are often associated with times of flux." It's out on Fire Talk Records.Coverage on music blogs Official website
