We’ve been holed up in the studio this past year+ and so it’s been an incredibly long while since we’ve updated this journal.
The veil of winter is lifting now as we come out of hibernation, and are excite to share with you the product of our seclusion…Akari.
One and a half years in the making, Akari is our new album released on 12k today.
The making of this album was both a joy and an arduous process, but we are extremely proud of it and want to share it with as many people as possible.
While available from iTunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/akari/id833133909 we recommend the physical release which is available from the 12k shop http://shop.12k.com/products/526023-illuha-akari and comes with a post card set painted by my 10 year old son, Sam Estlin.
We hope the music and artwork speak for themselves without us needing to be there to defend or make explanations.
Stay tuned for some behind-the-scenes images from the making of “Akari”, and also news about our upcoming Japan tour with Stephan Mathieu, Taylor Deupree and Federico Durand.
