Suzanne Kraft and JD Twitch will appear on the LA duo's second album, due out in July.
Ian Hicks and Patricia Hall first appeared with a self-titled album back in 2011, when they were still based in Portland. That record was a collection of lo-fi pop made with old synths and drum machines, inspired by contemporary acts like Blank Dogs and vintage krautrock and synth pop. They recorded their second full-length, Lenses, after a move to Los Angeles. The LP, which will be released through Captured Tracks, reportedly shows the duo moving in a more dance-oriented direction. Fellow LA resident Suzanne Kraft handles the bass on "In The Air," while Optimo member Keith McIvor, AKA JD Twitch, adds keys and percussion to a few songs. You can stream first single "Tell Me" here.
