Johnny Goss and Ola Hungerford (aka Cock and Swan) began making music together in 2003, on a Tascam 4-track in a tiny bedroom in Bothell, Washington. They now write and record in a white brick bunker by the river. Their music is inspired by old analog synthesizers, unplanned samples, giant vintage bass drums, and faded colors.

One could perhaps draw comparisons to the likes of Mum, Boards of Canada in more of a live band capacity, or perhaps a less heroin-chic XX, amongst the fragile homespun lyrics, warped melodies, off kilter rhythms, and murky thuds that lay comfortably with this dark lit duo. Yet, Johnny and Ola stay distinct and sharply on their own path.

For those who have followed Cock and Swan or explored their earlier endeavors, Stash marks a rather significant shift in their overall sound. Retooling their heavily synth-reliant sound into something a bit more stripped back, raw, and acoustic has resulted in something that we think you’ll agree is truly heart-warming, intimate, and highly addictive.
