(New York, NY): Today, California alt-duo slenderbodies release their debut album ‘Komorebi’ via Avant Garden Records. Conceptualized in the natural oasis of an isolated cabin, Max Vehuni and Benji Cormack have created a fusion of effervescent electric guitars and breathy falsetto vocals. The 11 – track silky smooth collection is steeped in self-reflection, exploring the ebbs and flows of friendship and romance while weaving in a deep connection to nature.

“Komorebi is a letter or time-capsule to our older selves,” Max and Benji say about the record. “The album is a reflection of our personal philosophies and sources of morality at the beginning of our adult lives and our career.”

The poppy “belong” is a love letter to wanderlust and its ability to help us find our community, while the surreal “dewdrops” meditates on the importance of having a place to call home. Their latest single “arrival” highlights the duo’s experimental style over handclaps, electric guitar loops, and breathy vocals.

slenderbodies first emerged in 2016 with ‘sotto voce,’ a mesmerizing EP that took its name from an Italian phrase meaning to speak softly but with emphasis. The collection quickly caught fire on Spotify, where it racked up millions of streams without any label or radio support. The next year, the pair returned with a second EP, ‘fabulist,’ which launched their following into the stratosphere as lead single “anemone” garnered more than 30 million plays across platforms.Though the duo had never planned on performing live, they soon found themselves on stage in front of massive crowds around the world, sharing bills with the likes of Mura Masa, Passion Pit, PVRIS, Milky Chance, and more. In 2018 and 2019, Vehuni and Cormack released two more EPs (‘fabulist: extended’ and ‘soraya’) earning ecstatic reviews on both sides of the pond and landing coveted spots at Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza. The Line Of Best Fit proclaimed that slenderbodies “conjure an immersive world” with their “genre-blurring” music, while Complex described their songs as “subtle but infectious.”
