*Limited edition of 200 copies.* Night Songs is the latest record from Awakened Souls, the Los Angeles based husband and wife duo- James and Cynthia Bernard (Marine Eyes).
In the Spring of 2021, they found a good night’s rest was more important than ever to help them through pandemic days of schooling kids from home and balancing work and life. After going on an evening walk, James and Cynthia would write in their bedroom studio and test the evening's songs out for sleep.
Even prior to being together, they both loved searching for just the right album to calm their minds at the end of the day. Night Songs is their combined version of a sleepy evening record, exploring slowly evolving loop-based ambient primarily using bass guitar and vocal textures. The tracks which ultimately made it on the album helped them relax enough to go to a place where thoughts fade.
