They are currently recording their next full-length album, which will release in the summer of 2021. “Johnson’s gorgeous passages would be enough to sustain the album on their own but with the integration of Swanson’s luxuriously cascading textures, Moon and Bike’s One goes beyond a mere acoustic instrumental record… and becomes the score to a deeply immersive experience. One is a near-perfect example of the atmosphere that can be created by two deeply in-sync musicians with a cinematic sense of composition.” — Jon C. Ireson, Music-News.com
