“Ravens & Writing Desks” was written specifically for Foundwaves’ project celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Lewis Carroll classic, Alice in Wonderland. For the past month and a half, the nonprofit site has released music based on each chapter, with contributions from bands like The Shills, Boom Said Thunder, The New Highway Hymnal, and Soft Pyramids.
The latest chapter — The Mad Tea Party — features art by Daykamp’s Nicole Anguish and music from Hands and Knees, and Sexy Girls.
The new Aloud song sees the band teaming up again with Leave Your Light On producer and frequent cohort Hugh Wyman. “For the entirety of this mad tea party the guests are stuck in time,” Jen told Foundwaves when describing the surreal track. “We wanted something trippy and slightly disorienting to reflect this.”
