Steve & Samantha share their ‘Wish Stack’ mix with AQNB to close out the year and ring in the holiday season. The London-based band features artists James Lowne and Ulijona Odišarija, who have been performing their lo-fi and melancholy anti-folk in art spaces and venues across London and abroad.
The selection of sketches of songs and works in progress were jammed out over a few hours, and recorded to the band’s phones, especially for AQNB. The results are a selection of roughshod and tactile evocations of emotions that often slip outside the realm of language. These indefinable sensations, built around repetitious piano progressions, guitar rhythms and softly spoken vocals, create a similar sensation to Odišarija’s beautifully evocative photography, which lives in the space where the everyday becomes extraordinary.**
