“Split Stones”

Despite the physical distance that separates them, Jared and Michael Bell’s brotherly connection sounds more tenacious than ever on their new album Split Stones. Throughout the album, the duo explore the power of disparate halves coming together to form a unique whole. The idea serves as an analogy for Jared and Mike’s relationship, Lymbyc’s sound, and the mind/body dichotomy. Check out the album’s title track below, which premiered on Stereogum here. +
