I don't really fall in love with people, so much as I fall in love with cities. One dear place that will always hold a pretty large chunk of my heart is London. Partly because I was born there, partly because of it's proximity to Europe, and partly due to some indescribable affection for all that is charming, ancient and cozy. Whatever it is, I long for that part of the world often.
This song coincidentally begins with "two oceans in between us", and listening to it makes my heart heavy with longing for my beloved Bonny/city that lies over the ocean. I can't help but think of London's grey skies and wet cobble-stone streets when I hear these bittersweet vocals.
We first heard FAMY one night at a bar in Shoreditch, along with some of our housemates, and I'm sure I can speak for both myself and Lauren when I say that their French/British sound has stuck with me ever since. Their debut EP Ava is due out later this year on Transgressive Records, and already has Zane Lowe championing it on BBC Radio 1.
