Born in Taiwan, Alex Zhang Hungtai (aka Dirty Beaches) grew up in North America. His music brings back to life the forgotten stories of a wild America of the 1960s, stories imprinted on scorched hope. Ela Orleans left her native Poland for Glasgow before settling in the vastness of New York. She takes us on a reverie of splendor and despair. This collection of pensive postcards from NYC is dedicated to night owls feeding on utopia and desolation.
