Whoever said you shouldn't mix business with pleasure obviously hasn't met Pauline Herr and TWERL

These two partners in life and labor have hit gold with Distance, a new collaborative EP inspired by the lust, love and longing of their long-distance relationship. As if on a journey over oceans, its emotive soundscapes twist and turn, diving deeper with raw and relatable lyrics that share their story: "I'm scared to let you go / Why can't you come with me? / Time's moving too quickly," Herr probes achingly on "Stay With Me." 

The narrative of a long-distance relationship might indeed be a tale as old as time. But Distance is tender and touching, affectionate and anxious, in a way we haven't quite heard before. Authenticity spills over in the wispy vocal chops and soul-shaking future bass of "Wherever You Go" while "Addicted" tugs on the heartstrings with whirring pads and melancholic sound design.
