Rosenau & Sanborn
Born out of a collaboration at the inaugural 2015 Eaux Claires music festival, Nick Sanborn (Sylvan Esso) and Chris Rosenau (Volcano Choir), both also previously members of Milwaukee’s Collections of Colonies of Bees, looked at each other after the final note of their impromptu set, knowing they were onto something special. After collaborating annually at each subsequent Eaux Claires festival, the duo took to a cabin in North Carolina to record their first album as Rosenau & Sanborn, ‘Bluebird’.
“The titles are the working titles we used that weekend, the mixes are the mixes we made as we were packing up that weekend, the pictures are the pictures we took that weekend. Our hope is for all of these things come together for you, the listener, as they did for us; to relay what we saw, what we heard, and how we felt that weekend. It’s definitely not a traditional way to present a record, but it’s definitely the way we’d like to present this record.” – Chris Rosenau
