There's nothing more captivating than a song about killing a rat that was once your friend and named after a country in Italy.

Maia and Sasha, the duo behind The Army, The Navy, have crafted a stunning and ethereal musical experience that will captivate and enrich every listener. Their latest creation, Fruit for Flies, is a breathtaking seven-song EP that showcases some of their most beloved tracks, such as the hauntingly beautiful "Vienna (In Memoriam)" and the soulful "Alexandra." With its otherworldly soundscapes, angelic vocals, and poetic lyrics, this EP is a masterpiece that deserves to be heard by all.

Maia and Sasha have had a remarkable start to their music career with their single "Vienna (In Memorium)," which has received significant recognition and appreciation online and beyond. Since then, they have continued to create a community through their recording sessions. They choose to record in cozy and comfortable settings, primarily sitting on a bed with a guitar, letting that same personal and intimate touch seep into the music itself.

As the musical duo progressed in their artistic journey, they decided to expand their discography by adding another well-crafted song called “Play My Music,” along with their previously released track, “Alexandra.” Fruit for Flies takes the listeners on a mesmerizing journey through a variety of experiences woven together like poems. “I spin the whole damn planet / Like a gentle hellraiser / Write it into the granite / So it keeps forever / I spend the whole day working / Like a reckless lifesaver / I spend the whole night searching / I'm a vulture with anger,” sings the duo.

The Army, The Navy's music has the power to create an enchanting aura of calmness and tranquility that permeates through one's soul, allowing them to let go of their internal worries and relax. The duo's unique style of remarkable harmonies and soothing sound is steadily earning them a devoted fan base. Their music has a therapeutic quality that makes it perfect for unwinding after a long day or enjoying peaceful moments.

The duo ingeniously crafted visuals to complement their singles and EP by incorporating the essence of their shared experiences. Partnering with artist Lucy Black, the band was able to create a world to surround the EP that perfectly reflected each song. The captivating visuals feature a mesmerizing blend of nature, fruits, and other original imagery that perfectly encapsulates the band's artistic vision.
