The One Year EP is a collection of love songs, set in each season, that examine nostalgia and how memories can change over time. How we forget the mundane to build the most perfect place in our minds. To create from this lens, each song was written in the opposite time of year to capture the nostalgic essence of each season.
Hear the initial courting of the fall before plunging into the deep comfort of winter. Listen as the bouncy optimism of spring turns into the playful adventure of summer in an album that celebrates folk music in all its forms.
"Uplifting, and could soothe even the weariest of hearts with it’s pleasant ambiance and stories of life and the changing of the seasons...This is everything folk music was meant to be, but brand new, and beautifully emotive." - Stereo Stickman
"As a duo, Hearne and Gilewicz are very special. As a record, ‘The One Year’ is an EP that stands very tall against its indie counterparts. Go listen to it now if you’re a fan of acoustic music." - The Independent Spotlight
