“Maria” Music Vid! (Link to full video in bio...) We scraped together this video to our recent single, “Maria,” and would be delighted if you found a couple minutes in your day to watch it. It features a collage of some breathtaking shots taken aboard the @iss last year (because who doesn’t love space!? You know this band does...) and will hopefully serve as a reminder that collectively, we still have a lot of work to do. More on that in the video’s description...

Happy Friday, 🌎! While you’ll have to wait another week for new music from us, we want to take a moment and reflect on some other music that was delivered to us all last week at this time. Coming in at a clean 8 lbs 3oz, she arrived beaming in the warmest of vocal harmony, wrapped in swaddling acoustic/electro arrangements, with a message of hope that will resonate with anyone that can feel. Our pals in @darlingside are the proud fathers, and #Extralife is her given name. Like any great work of art, we think her life on this 🌏 is going to be a very long one. So you should probably become acquainted with her soon! Take her for a walk. Introduce her to your friends, parents, cousins and co-workers. Anyone with ears, really. You can thank us (and them!) later.
