"For "Yearling" ORCAS members Benoit Pioulard and Rafael Anton Irisarri (The Sight Below) teamed up with Martyn Heyne (of Efterklang) on guitar and piano, and Michael Lerner (Telekinesis) on drums to built upon the subdued ambience of their self-titled debut, adding a huge dose of analog warmth to their hazy pop leanings. A lot happens in a year - jobs change, relationships flourish and crumble, friends leave us, and new people enter our lives. In this era of 140 characters, you may find yourself wishing from time to time that you'd written a few pages in a notebook about a certain experience or period of your life, when all those details were still fresh in your mind; "Yearling" does just that. Whereas many songs on ORCAS' first album were built from guitar improvisations and impromptu vocal sessions, most of "Yearling" was constructed from short pieces Pioulard wrote and developed while staying in Germany during the summer of 2012. Working together at Heyne's Lichte Studio in Berlin and Irisarri's own Black Knoll Studio back in Seattle, they brought the album into full form over the course of the following year."
