New York-by-way-of-Maine-based duo Mizuna invite you to escape your hectic week in their new music video for the single “And I Do” off of their debut album, From Away, From Here.

Despite spending their childhood together in Maine, Genviève Beaudoin and Mackenzie Leighton aptly became friends in a poetry class at New York University (where I also met the girls), after which they continued sharing their work. Though serendipitous in their reunion, their voices were made to harmonize with one another, melding together like warm tea and honey.

Those voices carry the sentimental quality of lines such as, “Sour so much I taste, harder bitter your love is so/I know I’ll see you on the street.” Genviève recalled that she first wrote this verse in the spring of 2012, and didn’t return to it until the making of the album last summer.  “I came upon the demo this past August, a time when I was feeling the weight of a pretty sore break-up,” she revealed.  “And it surprised me how real that verse had come to be.”

The lyrics go hand in hand with aged footage of cloudy skies and telephone lines, and the film grain crackling across cropped-haired ladies in one-piece swimsuits in the video directed by Victoria Deleone.

From Away, From Here, released independently for streaming in January, was recently made available for physical purchase via bandcamp as well.  The sublime debut features a catalog of warm sounds that make sense of being between places called home.

Check out our exclusive premiere of the dreamy music video for “And I Do” below, and be sure to catch Mizuna at Brooklyn’s Pete’s Candy Store on April 1.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
