GaiaThe song ‘Clarity’ has a special connotation for us. We met while working at an acupuncture clinic in Santa Monica. I, Alicia, was going through a bit of a rough patch. Having studied music almost all my life and having recently graduated from Cal State Northridge with a degree in Vocal Performance, I was feeling lost with how to proceed with a career in music and not at all happy to have to hold down a 9 to 5 job while figuring it out. At one point I even considered that maybe music wasn’t what I was meant to do after all, and I became even more confused. So at work one day, with needles sticking out of various parts of our heads and while drinking the barely tolerable herbal tea given to us by the doctor, I turned to Aura and said exasperatedly, “I just need to find some clarity.” Aura then turns to me, a shocked look on her face, and says, “I just wrote a new song called‘Clarity’!” Not long after, we performed at our first open mic together, performing ‘Clarity’. After that performance we both decided that this was something we wanted to pursue. A year and a half later we came out with our EP, and titled it ‘Clarity’, of course. I guess the moral of the story is that sometimes you get what you ask for : )
