When I Was Walking / Green Couch Cover art

To both kick off the new year and to follow up their new EP of Sandy Denny covers for Fruits de Mer, Britt and Anders are releasing a brand new single of original material on Mega Dodo. If you’ve been following Us & Them on Exposé, this band needs no introduction. The two songs extend their growing musical canon. “Green Couch” is a delicate and dreamy acoustic song with just a tad of electronics to augment Britt’s bucolic breathy vocals. The title track is a timeless acid folk waltz with dark surreal imagery and ethereal violin. Its slow tempo will have you swaying to and fro. If you have not previously heard Us & Them, then their new single is a good place to start.
