‘Etchings of Birds, Swimming in Song’ is the debut EP, set to be released in May 2019, by Hoo:Lumes. Huddled around a singular microphone on their back porch in West Asheville, Hoo:Lumes recorded ‘Etchings’ amidst the sounds of birds building their nests for the spring.

The warmth and intimacy of the EP showcases powerful songwriting that offers commentary on desire, materialism, loneliness and longing with grace and wit. ‘Etchings’ invites the listener into its comforting atmosphere, and can be a trusted companion on long drives, walks in the woods, curling into bed after a challenging day or reveling in the morning with a cup of coffee.
