“I write about my relationships with people and places. My songs usually come from being stuck somewhere—in a rut with a friend, with a boyfriend repeating the same fights, in a city that all my friends have left,” Lozinski said. “I always feel caught between being too young to do something and too old to start, and my music reflects that cycle of yearning that people feel in all parts of life: when to quit a job, when to move, when to get married, when to give up?”

Their latest project, Borrowed and Blue: Live Around One Microphone, is a testament to that.
