This was the first song we worked on with Nia and ended it up being a personal (SM) favourite on the album. Great open tuned acoustic guitar part, with a made-to-measure vocal.

We knew we’d have to ask Nia back for more recording after this session. Cello and viola melodies add depth and interest. This was the track that made Record of the Week on iTunes and got over 100,000 downloads.

Recorded these crickets on a hot holiday in France. We used to fall asleep listening to music and crickets. Now you can too.

Artwork

The snail sleeve and Cities of Foam logo were designed by freelance illustrator / designer Justin Kleiner in Florida. We really like his work and he’s also a talented musician who likes the CoF sound.
