We'd be lying if we said this wasn't a terrible year for us. For a studio based around bringing people together, 2020 sucked. But we're really proud of the things we were able to do. And that counts for something. Stay safe, friends - we can't wait to hang out with you again ๐Ÿ’œ

We've got a lot of cool things we'd like to do with TYL this year (again, when it's safe; when we can get in the studio/out to festivals; etc). We โœจsoโœจ want to set this up for long summer nights in the park / on a beach / projected onto big public outdoor walls somewhere! ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

One of the best parts of that project was installing little LED stars under the starscape @KMGYeah designed for the board for If Found, which would โœจsoftly twinkleโœจ. You can just about make them out in the second photo ๐ŸŒŒ

These are solid, beautifully made things, and we'd have dearly loved to have kept them - but we just don't have the funds to store anything long-term right now, and our studio is already full to bursting. We've stored them there since August, but we've now run out of time.

Honestly, it sucks (just another thing in an already dire year). But we'd love to see them go to a nice home, either all together (we have 11) or individually. If anyone is keen DM us, we can send you more details/specs, and chat about what the future holds for them, maybe ๐Ÿ’œ
