Written as the follow up to their 2010 release 'The Land of Make Believe", 'II' continues in the same tradition, rooted in soul and funk, yet drawing from modern harmonies and rhythms. Propelled by the success of 'Make Believe' the two launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for a follow up album in the Spring of 2012. After an overwhelming response, the generous support of their fans made it possible to head into the studio the following summer and being recording.
The album maintains the duo's staple funk/soul sound with songs like 'Moving On' and 'What comes naturally', but also explores more introspective themes driven by acoustic instrumentation in 'We Cry' and 'Falling into You'. The track 'We Cry' was specifically written and recorded for the humanitarian organization Nations Cry which is dedicated to bringing literacy to the third world. All proceeds from 'We Cry' will be donated Nations Cry. As a special bonus track ,'II' also features an acoustic version of the song 'Just Be' which was the flagship single from the debut album.
'II' represents a deeper maturity both lyrically and musically, yet still offers dance driven songs that will resonate with their fans.
