about.

Names is Ajay Bhattacharyya and Amy Kirkpatrick. They are young and honest musicians from Vancouver, Canada. Their sound sits somewhere between intelligent pop, elegiac trip hop, and emotionally charged electronica. Their live performances need little more than a monome, synthesizer, and Amy’s voice to create beautifully elegant soundscapes of their fresh take on modern music.

We've been fortunate enough to meet some amazing artists from around the globe to collaborate with. Here are a few of them:

Archan Nair: Ajay's long lost indian brother hailing from New Delhi. His art, work ethic, and guidance inspires us much and so consistently; we would definitely be a different band without him. And oh yeah, you're looking at his art work right now. Go say hey if you like his work, he's one of the nicest and most amazing individuals in this world.

Daniel Bonavita and Closemotion: Daniel's work is amazing. His team, Closemotion are based out of Brazil and they're doing incredible work. He has a very broad range as an artist and every style he tries, he does amazingly. I can't say enough about how good he is to work with. His work can be found in our downloads section. Go grab one of his wallpapers for your computer or iphone.

Mario Brioschi: Originally from Italy, Mario and Ajay met at school in Vancouver and realized they were neighbors. We collaborated with him on his video Maybe One Morning. Mario put so much time into his work it definitely paid off. It's a rad video and he's a rad person.
