In the new year, I decided to pack up my life and move across the country, leaving my old home in Brooklyn for my new home in Los Angeles. At the same time, producer Sara Brooke Curtis was leaving her home in San Francisco for the northeast.

We decided to keep track of our changing cities and changing lives through sound, through observation of the world around us. We wrote down our thoughts. We pressed record as things happened. We tucked away our favorite moments. And when we’d arrived at our destinations, we took our two stories and made them one chapters of the same book.

Do you know that feeling you get when you’re about to leave a place? That clarity? Like you’re seeing it all for the first time. That all the sounds and sights that blended into the background of your life before, are now powerful and in your face?

Today on ARRVLS we want you to put your headphones in. Go for a walk. And join us.
