Mt. Si is a collaborative project among three friends in LA – Sarah Chernoff of Superhumanoids, Jesse Kivel of Kisses, and Classixx’s Michael David. “We’re all friends who originally got together to work on songs for the first Classixx album,” explained Jesse. “Mike and I wrote a track that I was supposed to sing, but Sarah came in and stole the show. From there we realized that we had good chemistry as a trio, writing and producing in a subtle, refined way. We’ve been slowly chipping away at songs for almost four years now. A relaxed and loose approach to the project, never settling until we have a great track has been one of the guiding principles.”
Mt. Si’s members further connected over their common ties to Israel, and when friend and photographer David Kitz produced a pic from a mountain range outside Tel Aviv, the visual aesthetic for the EP took shape. The imagery was further abstracted for the cover by Thom Ulmer, while vocalist Sarah Chernoff traveled to Israel with a director to shoot pics for the release along with an upcoming video for song, “Oh.”
Mt. Si’s Limits EP is out February 5 on 12″ Vinyl.
