There comes a time in every girl/boy, folk/pop duo's life when they need to record their debut EP. Achoo! Bless You followed the same old formula really: booking studio time, hiring an engineer and enlisting the skills of a hot-shot producer. But a week out from the scheduled recording time, things weren't feeling so right. They cancelled the studio, grabbed a friend to engineer, and headed to a remote beach house a couple hours north of Sydney to dive into the world of self-production and DIY recording.

It’s an ethos that is deeply engrained in both Ross & Ash’s minds about how they want things to go. It’s about capturing the music yes, but also about letting in a little (or sometimes a lot) of the people who are making it and their surroundings. And it’s more fun doing it yourself anyway.

This video features all 6 tracks from Achoo! Bless You's debut EP: No Island. It closes with their debut single Before We Say Goodbye, which has received Triple J airplay, been added to rotation on Triple J Unearthed, and to rotation on Sydney’s FBi Radio 94.5.
